Todd Helton Mugshot

Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton was pulled over and arrested just blocks away from his home at 2:39am this morning for driving under the influence of alcohol.  Helton’s blood-alcohol level was not released by police but he seems a little sleepy in his mugshot.

From the Denver Post:

Matt Barnes, a spokesman for the Thornton Police Department, said police received a call at about 2:08 a.m. from a witness reporting a pickup truck being driven in an erratic manner and heading southbound on Colorado Boulevard. When police located the black pickup truck, it was already pulled into a gas station, Barnes said.

Helton released a statement through his lawyers that said: “Last evening I exercised poor judgment and was charged with drinking and driving after driving to a gas station near my house. I am very sorry and embarrassed by my actions. I hold myself to a high standard and take my responsibility as a public figure very seriously. My entire career I have worked to set a positive example for my family and in our community and I fell far short of this standard.

“I sincerely ask my family, the Colorado Rockies Organization, Major League Baseball and the community to accept my apology. I make no excuses and accept full responsibility for my actions. I humbly ask your forgiveness.”

Good to see Todd is staying in shape during the off season.  Jesus.  Are the cops sure that Helton was just in a food coma because it looks like he is averaging about three pepperoni pies a night.  Is driving under the influnce of a cured meat an arrestable offense?
Just in case you needed a reminder, this is what Helton looked like this past season.
