Cardinals broadcaster admits DUI, gets probation
Thursday, November 18, 2010
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis Cardinals television broadcaster will serve two years of probation after pleading guilty to driving under the influence last summer in suburban St. Louis.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 36-year-old Dan McLaughlin’s attorney says his client, whose case was resolved Wednesday, has completed community service. The attorney says McLaughlin realizes he made a mistake and takes responsibility for it.
McLaughlin was arrested Aug. 16 after an officer responding to a report of an erratic driver stopped his vehicle on Interstate 64 in Chesterfield.
Police say McLaughlin refused a breathalyzer test.
McLaughlin is the primary play-by-play announcer for Cardinals games on Fox Sports Midwest.
