    Todd Helton arrested on DUI

    He's been a good guy and I hope this is just a one time thing. Still... the mug shot is hilarious. I'm thinking to myself "did this dude get drunk on cheeseburgers?"

    So what is the legal limit on cheeseburgers? Also, I'd hate to think what replaces a breathalyzer to test for the limit...

    I have no idea but he's in the Prince Fielder range of athleticism from the looks of it.

    Aw, he blinked when the pic was taken.

    Looked like he was passed out and just leaning against the wall when they took the mugshot.

    That is not the mugshot of a man who had two beers and wanted to grab some gummy worms.

    Well, maybe the second part. Looks like we've been training together this off season.

    I am thinking the mug might make a good avatar

    He reminds me of one of the aliens in the first MIB movie in this shot.

    Which would explain his addiction to cheeseburgers as well

    Re: Todd Helton arrested on DUI

    Todd Helton told Colorado police during his DUI arrest that he had consumed two "igloo cups" of red wine.

    Helton was arrested in the parking lot of a gas station at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was noticeably impaired, according to the police report obtained by TMZ, and was clutching lottery tickets in his hand. His truck struck a median on the way to the gas station, which set off the initial tip to the cops. This is a guy who has made more than $156 million in his major league career. Feb 7 - 11:59 AM

    Re: Todd Helton arrested on DUI

    I find it kind of petty when a news report lists how much money a guy makes or has made in his career.

    Are we to be more upset at a veteran making lots of money or a rookie who isn't making that much? Or why does it matter.

    To me, some DUI's are serious, and I've known people who have gotten questionable ones. I think the limit should be raised a little. I know a petite adult woman who drank one beer and blew right at the limit, which I find ridiculous.

    If I made over $160M before turning 40 years old, I could probably afford a taxi in a situation like that.
