Riley Sheahan, Red Wings prospect, arrested for being “Superdrunk” in teletubby costume!

Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan, the team’s No. 1 draft pick in 2010, faces a “super-drunk” charge after twice blowing .30 on a breathalyzer test following an Oct. 29 traffic stop in Grand Rapids, Mich., reported.

Sheahan, who plays for the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins, was wearing a purple Teletubby costume when stopped for going down the wrong way of a Grand Rapids street. Sheahan, who has scored three goals and two assists in 15 games of action this season, also was charged with providing false information. He was using 23-year-old teammate Brendan Smith’s ID to get into bars, the 20-year-old Sheahan said, per the police report obtained by MLive.

Sheahan failed two sobriety tests and refused to take a breathalyzer at the scene. After being transported to the Kent County Jail, police then administered the breathalyzer test and discovered Sheahan’s real license in his wallet after he kept telling authorities that his name was Riley.

Sheahan is in his first professional season after two at Notre Dame. says he pleaded not guilty at an arraignment in Nov. 6, and has his next hearing scheduled for Dec. 13.

After Sheahan’s arrest, Red Wings GM Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press that the team would handle it internally. Sheahan was arrested for public intoxication and underage drinking as a freshman at Notre Dame.

“We’re gathering information internally and making decisions on what we can do to help him, if he needs help. Beyond that, I can’t really comment. He’s going through the court system, the legal system,” Holland said

“Obviously, Riley made a very poor decision.”
