ESPN Radio Personality Arrested on DUI Charges in Skokie

Radio personality Harry Teinowitz was arrested on March 4th for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol. Police were called by a witness who reported Teinowitz had swerved across all four lanes of traffic and almost struck his vehicle several times. Teinowitz was charged with improper lane usage and DUI after Breathalyzer results showed his blood alcohol content was .131 percent.

According to a Skokie police report he had fresh marijuana residue on his shirt and a strong odor of pot coming from his vehicle. When questioned about the marijuana, Teinowitz told the officer that his car was recently parked using a valet service and the driver must have smoked pot in his car. He denied having any pot. His driver’s license was taken away and he was released on a $1000 D-bond. His vehicle was impounded and is scheduled to appear in court on March 23, 2011.

Teinowitz made an announcement on his show saying he made “a horrible mistake in judgement.”

Last may Teinowitz was removed from the White Sox clubhouse after he reportedly was loud and behaving in a manner which Sox executives believed was inappropriate.

Teinowitz has been with on the “Afternoon Saloon” since 2001. He is currently suspended from the show and an ESPN spokesperson said that the “company is reviewing the additional information that has come to light and that his suspension will continue through Monday.”
