Mike Adamle Cleared Of DUI Charges

Chicago sportscaster Mike Adamle was cleared of driving under the influence after Cook County prosecutors dismissed the charges Friday.

The 61-year-old was stopped in January by Evanston police after he committed a traffic violation and exhibited erratic behavior, according to authorities. Adamle’s blood-alcohol level was only 0.04, half the legal limit.

“I’m extremely grateful I’m done here,” Adamle told the Chicago Tribune outside the courtroom. “I couldn’t have been more cooperative. I did everything they asked me and then some.”

According to Adamle, he lost several speaking engagements as a result of the arrest.

Last week, the former NFL running back was promoted to a full-time sportscaster with the NBC Chicago affiliate, replacing the late Daryl Hawks, who was found dead while on assignment in Atlanta.
