Legendary NBC Sportscaster Al Michaels Arrested For DUI

NBC Sportscaster Al Michaels, who has spent decades calling “Sunday Night Football” and “Monday Night Football” NFL games for NBC Sports and ABC Sports, was arrested Sunday for driving under the influence. He also called the legendary “Miracle On Ice” hockey game between the U.S. and Soviet Union at the 1980 Winter Olympics.

ESPN has more details on the arrest:

He was booked for suspicion of DUI and held for about five hours before being released on his own recognizance, Lewis said.

“We are aware of the situation and we’ve been in contact with Al,” said Greg Hughes, a spokesman for NBC Sports. “We have no further comment at this time.”
