GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A Detroit Red Wings prospect faces charges under Michigan's tough "super drunk" designation following a traffic stop during which police discovered him clad in a Teletubby costume.
According to a Grand Rapids police report, Riley Sheahan twice registered a blood alcohol level of .30 per cent when tested in jail following his arrest on Oct. 29.
Police say the 20-year-old Grand Rapids Griffins centre from St. Catharines, Ont., was wearing the costume of a purple Teletubby known as Tinky Winky during the stop.
The "super drunk" charge carries a penalty of 180 days in jail and possible deportation.
