Police: Chicago Sportscaster Did Head Stand, Danced In Street During Traffic Stop

Chicago sportscaster Mike Adamle got pulled over for allegedly running a flashing red traffic signal in Evanston, Ill. a few weeks back. But was he drunk? He says no, that he had one glass of wine two hours earlier.

Here's the police assertion:

"Before Adamle was administered the walk and turn and the one-leg stand tests he voluntarily started to dance in the street, and at one point even did a head stand," says the police report filed by Officer B. Hicks.



Anyway, he blew a 0.044 percent, which is below the 0.08 percent legal limit. But the police report - obtained via Freedom of Information Act request - says he exhibited "erratic behavior" while in lock up, grinding his teeth, rubbing his nose, and acting "extremely jittery." Lomictal, for seizures, Adamle explained.
