08:22 AM ET 11.28 | Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan made a series of very bad choices late last month. [Sheahan] had a blood-alcohol content of .30 -- nearly four times the legal limit and nearly double the threshold for the "super-drunk" charge he faces following his arrest in late October by Grand Rapids Police. Sheahan, 20, who plays for the Grand Rapids Griffins, was wearing the costume of a purple Teletubby, also known as Tinky Winky, when he was pulled over by police on Oct. 29. He also was charged with providing false information. He was carrying the Michigan driver's license of Brendan Smith when he was pulled over by police on Ottawa Avenue NW in downtown Grand Rapids.

Late last month would be Halloween, right?

Driving at .30 would be, wrong!

Tinky Winky? Uh-oh....Jerry Falwell will be furious about that.

And what, was this kid hanging with Patrick Kane?

Maybe a career with Sesame Street in the making.

Dumb arse! Trade him to the Leafs for a 1st rounder. He'll fit right in.

His blood-alcohol reading of .30 is bit low for Burkie but it could work.

It was Tinky-Winky or Tony Romo. He chose wisely. :-)

It took a great deal of self-control on my part not to go there but ..... what the hell!

It would've been a whole lot easier to swallow if it was Jonas Disgustavson.

I'll bet there is a good story behind how it happened, but he probably doesn't remember it.

Yeah, never been any other drunk-driving incidents involving the Wings...

Drunk driving? Yes. Dressed as a fairy? This might be a first.

Speaking of prospects Danny, your boy Morgan Reilly was in town last night with Moose Jaw. That kid is going to be money. I sincerely hope the Leaf organization doesn't screw him all up. I like him.

A cheap shot with Otis here. But, a very good one. :)
