Todd Helton arrested for DUI
Rockies first baseman Todd Helton, 39, was arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and careless driving in Thornton.
Reached by phone Wednesday, Helton declined to comment on the record to The Denver Post, saying only that he was “very sorry.”

DUIs are a bad idea, and that needs to be made clear off the top, but man … that’s a Nolte-caliber mugshot.

Doesn’t Chris Brown have handlers? Someone telling him that it’s a bad idea to get into fights in parking lots? Sounds like a nihilist.
