Detroit Red Wings prospect is arrested for drunk driving

20-year-old Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan was arrested October 29 in Grand Rapids and charged with driving with a high blood-alcohol level content, above .17, and giving false information.
The amount of alcohol in his blood is more than two times higher than the rate and Sheahan can get up to 180 days in prison.

At the trial, which took place on November 6, hockey player pleaded not guilty. The forward, who was chosen by Detroit in the first-round draft pick in 2010, was arrested for public intoxication during his freshman season at Notre Dame in 2010.
"I'm aware that Riley was charged with a DUI," Detroit general manager Ken Holland said. "We're handling it internally. He sat out a game. We've talked to him. We're aware of what's happened."
