YES Network Host Bob Lorenz Reportedly Charged with DUI

Veteran YES Network host Bob Lorenz has been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence. The Associated Press says police found Lorenz passed out in his car in Westport, Connecticut, where he makes his home.

The 48-year-old Lorenz was arrested early yesterday. Police say the sportscaster was slumped over the wheel. When cops woke him, Lorenz attempted to drive away slowly, but nearly hit a utility pole. Officers on the scene say his speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.

Lorenz, who hosts the pregame and postgame shows for New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets games, was arraigned yesterday at Norwalk Superior Court. His case was continued until February 29.

A YES Network spokesman had no comment to FishbowlNY.
