Kragar Posted August 21, 2015 Share Posted August 21, 2015 Minnesota Wild assistant coach and former Dallas Stars defenseman Darryl Sydor was arrested Thursday for driving under the influence by the Anoka County Sherrif’s Office in Minnesota. The former Stanley Cup winner reportedly was arrested at 5:15 p.m. after an observer called in and reported “erratic behavior” to the police, Lt. Mike Monsrud told the Star-Tribune.Sydor, 43, was charged with second-degree driving while impaired, according to the sheriff office’s official website. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the coach could also face child-endangerment charges. He failed field-sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol content level of .30 — over three times the legal limit — and had one of his sons in the car with him, Monsrud told the newspaper. “One of the officers actually drove the child to the hockey game in Brooklyn Park,” Monsrud reportedly said, as attempts to contact the boy’s mother were unsuccessful. Further arrangements were made to get the boy safely home, according to the report. Sydor remained in jail Friday morning, according to the sheriff office’s website. Sydor was traded to the Stars in 1996, helping Dallas win the 1999 Stanely Cup. He was traded to Columbus in 2003, but had later stints with the club during the 2006-07 and 2008-09 seasons. http://starsblog.dallasnews.com/2015/08/former-dallas-stars-defenseman-darryl-sydor-arrested-for-dui-reportedly-had-bac-over-30-son-in-the-car.html/ At least he was caught before anyone could get hurt. Bonehead move if you ask me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
