On Friday evening, Detroit Lions President Tom Lewand was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, after police pulled him over for driving “erratically.” Upon questioning Lewand, the officer claimed to have smelled some booze, leading to the standard field sobriety test. Lewand initially refused to take a breath test, but later huffed out a .21 and then a .20, as revealed today by the Detroit Free Press. The legal limit for Michigan is .08, so Lewand’s results are a tad frowned upon.
Lewand, who claimed to be a designated driver that evening, had been sober for close to a year and a half before this little episode, and has since announced his regret for putting everyone on the road that night in danger. NFL representatives have yet to announce if Lewand will face a punishment, but feel free to weigh your thoughts on a person driving with a BAC of nearly three times the legal limit against his statement apology:
