The following is an update on the recent arrest of former WWE Raw GM Mike Adamle. It’s from the Chicago Tribune, and can be read in full at http://triblocal.com/evanston/2011/01/14/update-sportscaster-charged-with-dui-had-blood-alcohol-level-below-legal-limit/

"WMAQ-Ch. 5 sportscaster Mike Adamle had a blood alcohol level below the 0.08 percent legal limit when Evanston police pulled him over early Monday morning and charged him with driving under the influence, police Chief Richard Eddington confirmed Friday.

The chief said he “would not dispute” reports that Adamle’s blood alcohol level was 0.04 percent. The former Chicago Bear and Northwestern University All-American was arrested at 1 a.m. Monday in the area of Main Street and Judson Avenue after allegedly disobeying a red-flashing traffic signal at Main and Sheridan, according to police.

Eddington said he was unaware whether Adamle, 61, displayed any other signs of erratic driving when police pulled him over. The officer who stopped him conducted a field sobriety test, which Adamle failed, said police Cmdr. Jay Parrott.

Adamle was taken to the police station, where he exhibited some “erratic behavior,” according to Parrott, who would not elaborate.

Eddington said it is possible to bring DUI charges against an individual whose blood alcohol level is below the legal limit, but the absence of a BAC higher than 0.08 percent makes proving the charge more difficult."
