 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The son of Nashville Predators' owner Craig Leipold was charged with drunken driving Thursday after police pulled him over for speeding, marking his second drunken-driving arrest since May.
Christopher Leipold was pulled over Thursday morning after Officer Kevin Wayne Lovell said he clocked him driving 43 mph in a 35-mph zone. The officer got out of his car after motioning for the 31-year-old to pull over.
Leipold seemed confused before rolling the window up, then back down, Lovell wrote in an affidavit. Lovell also said he smelled alcohol and that Leipold admitted to having ``a couple'' of drinks.
When asked to get out of the car for sobriety tests, the officer said Leipold was ``unsteady on his feet and braced himself with his left hand on the door frame.'' When asked to turn and face Lovell on the sidewalk, the officer said Leipold ``lost his balance and nearly fell into me.''
The officer put Leipold in his patrol car and asked him to take a breath test. Leipold, who was arrested for drunken driving and a hit and run accident in May, said, ``I cannot.'' After a sixth request, Leipold agreed to a breath test, and his blood alcohol level was measured at 0.24 percent, three times the legal limit.
He was booked at 4 a.m. local time with bond set at $1,500. The attorney who represented him on his previous arrest, Harold Donnelly, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Leipold's father has the team up for sale, a purchase that must be completed by Oct. 31 under the agreement with a local group of investors. Christopher Leipold has worked for the team, which declined to comment.
