Red Wings prospect pleads guilty to drunken driving in Mich. after arrest in Teletubby outfit

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Detroit Red Wings prospect has pleaded guilty to drunken driving following his arrest in a Teletubby costume in western Michigan.

The 61st District Court says Riley Sheahan pleaded guilty today to operating a car with a blood-alcohol level of 0.17 or higher. He was placed on probation for a year and sentenced to 49 hours on a work crew.

Sheahan, who plays for the Grand Rapids Griffins, was wearing the costume of the purple Teletubby named Tinky Winky when he was arrested in Grand Rapids on Oct. 29. Police at the time said he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.30, well over the legal limit.

The 21-year-old Sheahan was 20 at the time of the arrest.
