First, take this into consideration for a minute. Mike Adamle is 61.
Yeah, if you grew up with American Gladiators (not that stupid shit from a couple years ago) you know Adamle as the former NFLer turned sportscaster for a variety of ventures.
Ch. 5 sportscaster Mike Adamle has been charged with driving under the influence after he was stopped by Evanston police early Monday and later displayed â€œerratic behavior,â€ authorities said Tuesday.
The former Chicago Bear and Northwestern University All-American was arrested at 1 a.m. Monday in the area of Main Street and Judson Avenue, according to a police report.
Adamle was pulled over for allegedly disobeying a red-flashing traffic signal at Main and Sheridan, according to police Cmdr. Jay Parrott. The officer who pulled him over believed Adamle could be under influence, so he conducted a field sobriety test, which Parrott said Adamle failed.
Mike Adamle drunk? Oh, no fucking way. There must be a mistake.
We get the impression that Adamle has nailed a few ladies in his day and has closed a couple of bars along the way. In other words, we feel like he’s the Rick Pitino of the sportscasting world. The Ron Franklin of Chicago. Etc.
Still waiting on the boozy mug shot.
