Mizzou Coach Gary Pinkel Arrested For DWI

As is now a rite of passage for being a celebrity sports figure in the state of Missouri, University of Missouri head football coach Gary Pinkel was arrested last night for Driving While Intoxicated by the Boone County sheriff's department. He was pulled over for lane and signal violations on Keene Street around 10 p.m and was said to be cooperative.

It's unfortunate timing for Pinkel, if this incident were to occur next year when the Tigers will be in the SEC, the arresting officer would have just given him a ride home, as is tradition in the south (unless the Sheriff also carries a 2 X 4 around for unknown reasons).

The good news for Pinkel is that if post-DWI career patterns hold for local sports heroes, he will now go on to hit a home run to win game six of the World Series, appear on Leno, and might have relations with Erin Andrews.
