Last week Friday, it is reported that the President of the Detroit Lions was arrested for driving under the influence. At the time of his DUI stop, Tom Lewand allegedly had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that was twice the state's legal blood alcohol limit,
Lewand was stopped by police after driving erratically during Friday's evening hours. Officers say that Lewand was driving a sports utility vehicle when they say him crossing from one lane into another after leaving a bar parking lot. Lewand's breath test result was .21%. He took the test one hour after his arrest.
When stopped by police, Lewand told then that he has "not drank in a year and a half". He said that he had stopped at the bar as a designated driver and was there to pick up a friend.
Police issued Lewand with a citation for operating while intoxicated in Denton Township. He later apologized for his actions.
