Detroit Red Wings Prospect Riley Sheahan Arrested for DUI While Dressed as Tinky Winky [VIDEO]

Riley Sheahan, a young prospect for the Detroit Red Wings, faces charges under Michigan’s tough ‘Super Drunk’ driving law, after a traffic stop in which police discovered him dressed as one of the Teletubbies.

Tinky Winky had too much to drinky.

Sheahan’s blood alcohol level registered .30 in two consecutive tests. He faces 180 days in jail, and possible deportation.

See the Grand Rapids Police Department’s dash cam video below.

But wait, there’s more.

According to Rant Sports, Sheahan presented the driver’s license of another Red Wings prospect, Brendan Smith, to police. The 20-year old had been using the other player’s ID in order to get into bars.

This is Sheahan’s second alcohol-related arrest. He played one game with the Red Wings last season, and currently plays for the Wings’ minor league affiliate in Grand Rapids.
