Another bits the alcohol dust! Singer-Songwriter Miguel was recently arrested on DUI charges. Peep more of the story below…
According to TMZ:
Law enforcement sources tell us … California Highway Patrol officers initially flagged the 27-year-old singer’s 2013 BMW X6 for speeding and tinted windows on an L.A. freeway around 2:15 AM.
During the stop, officers noticed the singer reeked of booze … and performed various field sobriety tests, which he bombed.
Miguel — full name Miguel Jontel Pimentel — also took a breathalyzer and blew a .10 and .11 … which is over the .08 legal limit in CA.
Miguel was then arrested for DUI and hauled to a nearby station where he was booked … and released a few hours later on $5,000 bail.
According to his booking sheet, Miguel is 5’7″ and 140 pounds.
He’s scheduled to appear in court in September.
So far, no word from Miguel’s camp.
One thing we’ve always encouraged here at SFPL is safe driving.
**Note to celebs: If you know that you’re going out to have a good time and don’t want to worry about alcohol consumption, then get a driver…take a cab…let a friend drive — something!! It’s just that simple.
Hopefully, Miguel learns a lesson from this. We’re just glad that he is ok.
