We previously mentioned that MLB star Todd Helton was BUSTED for a DUI!
Even though Todd once signed a contract for a whopping $141 million dollars, when he was busted for his DUI, he was buying lotto tickets!!
According to the police report, the cops found Helton after they got a tip that his Ford F-150 pickup truck had hit a median then parked at a nearby gas station.
When cops got to the scene, they spotted Helton stumbling out of the gas station, reeking of liquor and holding onto his lottery tickets.
He told the cops he didn't hit a median and then, according to the cops:
"[…] made spontaneous statements about drinking two igloo cups of red wine."
He was then arrested on 3 counts of DUI, whatever that means. One DUI per drink over the legal limit, perhaps? LOLz!
The police report did say that he was:
"[…] respectful and professional throughout the entire process."
That's the best way to handle things.
We're glad he was so mature about everything and hopefully now he's on the path to recovery and changing his life!
