It would be interesting to me if we had a teletubby-theme set of avatars going on around here for Wings fans. People come on here and think, "WTF..." Haha.

I was reading that this charge also comes with possible deportation ... does that mean that he can't play hockey anymore ?

There's a video if anyone is interested : http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/nat...tubbie-costume

I genuinely feel bad for him, him being a Red Wings' prospect and all, but he did drive way over the legal limit, the wrong way on a one-way street.

from Rotoworld, mlive link isn't working:

Quote:
Riley Sheahan pleaded guilty on Thursday to his "superdrunk" driving offense of operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of .17 or higher.

Charges against him for displaying or using false identification and driving the wrong way on Ottawa Avenue were dismissed. According to court officials, the Detroit prospect had to pay a $1,325 fine and he agreed to complete 49 hours on a work crew, attend a victim impact class and serve 12 months of probation. Sheahan has been playing his rookie season in AHL Grand Rapids, where he has generated four goals and four assists in 20 games.
It doesn't sound like he'll be deported.

This is the US. Slaps on the wrist are par for the course for DUIs. Professional athlete or not.

The penalties for DUI vary from county to county, etc. A year probation is a pretty standard punishment for a 1st offense (even being superdrunk) here in MI. With probation Riley's gonna have to do his drinking earlier in the day from now on!

There's a double standard for sure. Any regular Joe would find themselves in FAR more trouble.

Given his age, it is common to lose one's license. I have a relative that lost hers on a first offense, with a BAC 33% lower. Additionally, he has an alcohol related incident on his record already. It varies by county as you said, and also by judge within a county even, but he could not have hoped for a better outcome. This is as good as it was going to get.... special treatment, as I would expect.

Usually I would agree but his punishment seems pretty average to me. First time DWI offense is a slap on the wrist just about anywhere unless you cause property damage or personal injury. Don't like to say it but I've been in his shoes except I was legal drinking age. He paid roughly 30% more in fines, ordered to do more community service(40-49hrs), both ordered to take a class, but he received one year probation less than myself. I'm not comparing 1975 to 2012 either, more like 2007 to 2012 and I'm VERY far from a professional athlete or a rich little trust fund kid.

I agree though there are a lot of factors that play into the punishment. Hopefully he pulls his head out of his anus or we may see the double standard come into play if he doesn't learn.

It has nothing to do with being a professional athlete or a celebrity, it's about having the money for a good lawyer

In this case he got what most 1st time offenders get, really with worse community service than a lot of people get. Granted a decent amount of people wind up behind bars because they cannot pay the fine and most lose their job. However, that isn't the case with everyone and really every once in a while I think DAs make targets out of famous figures and sports people. I am not saying it always happens but everyonce in a while it seems they get an even bigger push because of who they are. It can work both ways plus nobody would be calling any of us Tinky Winky for the rest of our lives or chanting it at us if it did happen to us.

That punishment is pretty standard. No real special breaks or lawyering. You average public defender would get that result for just about anyone. Let's just hope the kid learned his lesson.

Lol, most people don't lose their jobs because of a DUI

Michigan's "super drunk" law was passed in 2009, so the penalties Sheahan faced were much stiffer than those you did. My brother got a DUI in 2003 or 2004. It was a different ballgame then for a first time offender. My cousin was busted last year, again a first time offender, and Sheahan got off so lightly compared to her.
