    Default Al Michaels was busted for a DUI the other day

    AL MICHAELS
    BUSTED
    FOR DUI
    EXCLUSIVEAl Michaels -- perhaps the most well-known sportscaster in the world -- was arrested Friday night for suspicion of DUI ... TMZ has learned.

    Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Michaels went through a DUI checkpoint in Santa Monica at approximately 10:00 PM on Friday and when he spoke to officers, they detected an odor of alcohol.

    We're told he was pulled over and given a field sobriety and after performing poorly, he was placed under arrest. Michaels was released from jail at 4:15 AM on Saturday on his own recognizance.

    According to our sources, Michaels blood alcohol level was right at the legal limit -- he blew a .08 and a .09 in two breathalyzer tests.

    Our sources say Michaels could not have been nicer throughout the ordeal.

    Michaels was the play-by-play man for "Monday Night Football" for 20 years before moving over to "Sunday Night Football." He's also done baseball and basketball ... but is best known for his call of the legendary "Miracle on Ice" hockey game at the 1980 Winter Olympics.

    I bet he's not.
    Great sportscaster nonetheless. My favorite by far.

    Al Michaels will NOT go to jail in his DUI case ... DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!?!?

    KIDDING!!!! He was never in any real danger of going to the slammer ('cause it was his first DUI) ... but he did strike a plea deal and will be on probation for the next 24 months.

    As we reported, Michaels was popped on April 19th after making an illegal U-turn in front of a DUI checkpoint in L.A. He was subsequently charged with two counts of DUI.

    Al just struck a deal with prosecutors -- agreeing to plead no contest to reckless driving -- (a lesser charge) ... he was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and placed on probation.

    Now GO OUT THERE AND CALL SOME PRESEASON FOOTBALL GAMES!!!!!!

    .08-.09 isn't exactly 'hard partying'. In fact you probably would've been hard pressed to even notice he'd been drinking if you were to have met him that night unless this was the first time he'd ever drank alcohol in his life.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
