Is he awake? Rockies first baseman Todd Helton arrested for DUI

Former All Star Todd Helton was arrested Wednesday morning for DUI, but maybe he should be booked again for the woefully bad photo he took for his immortal mug shot. We know it isn’t supposed to be glamorous, but damn homie….Wake up….

Helton was arrested in Thornton, CO, after being pulled over a few blocks away from his home at 2:39 a.m.

Via the Denver Post, Helton released this statement:

Last evening I exercised poor judgment and was charged with drinking and driving after driving to a gas station near my house. I am very sorry and embarrassed by my actions. I hold myself to a high standard and take my responsibility as a public figure very seriously.
My entire career I have worked to set a positive example for my family and in our community and I fell far short of this standard.

I sincerely ask my family, the Colorado Rockies Organization, Major League Baseball and the community to accept my apology. I make no excuses and accept full responsibility for my actions. I humbly ask your forgiveness.

We will, as long as you take another picture bro….
