THORNTON, Colo. (AP) - A police report says Rockies first baseman Todd Helton told an officer he had red wine hours before he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Helton is due in court May 20 on charges of DUI and careless driving. He was arrested early Wednesday at a gas station in the Denver suburb of Thornton, where he lives.
According to a police incident report released Thursday, officers arrested Helton after a witness reported seeing Helton's truck swerve into a median before pulling into the gas station. Helton's blood-alcohol level hasn't been released, but police say it was above the legal driving limit. Officers say Helton volunteered that he had two cups of wine Tuesday night.
Helton has apologized for his actions in a statement released by the Rockies.
