St. Louis Cardinals play-by-play announcer, Dan McLaughlin, was arrested and charged with DWI Sunday in Missouri after crashing into a street sign and fleeing the scene. This is after he was arrested for DWI in August of 2010 and took that hilarious mug shot that you can see in the bottom left of the above picture.
Here’s more on the story, from STLToday.Com:
Cardinals broadcaster Dan McLaughlin has been cited for drunken driving for a second time after a stop by Chesterfield police on Sunday.
Police said McLaughlin, 37, was stopped at 10:13 p.m. on Baxter Road and Isleview Drive after he crashed his vehicle. No other vehicle was involved, police say, but they declined to elaborate.
Police also accused McLaughlin of leaving the scene of an accident and negligent driving. He was released on $750 bond.
McLaughlin has not yet appeared in court on the charges. Police declined to provide any more information until formal charges are issued.
After two DWIs in just over a year, you have to wonder if the Cardinals and Fox Sports Midwest allow McLaughlin to return as the Cardinals’ television play-by-play man next year. I’m not liking his chances.
