Why were Johnny Damon and his wife Michelle arrested?
Damon's wife Michelle also happened to be in the car according to police reports quoted by TMZ, and she was said to be completely out of control. Cops were quoted as saying that Michelle was extremely combative and she was also not willing to cooperate. At one point during the arrest, she reportedly even pushed an officer back and this is reportedly said to have caused her arrest for battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.
The most recent media reports also confirm the blood-alcohol level in Damon to have been .30. He was pulled over at 1.23 am following officers observing Damon's car swerving all over the road. His speech was slurred and he was also unable to stand properly leading to more questioning by the officials and that was when he confessed to consuming alcohol earlier in the evening.
He was quoted as saying "just a little bit" in addition to "motioning with his left hand and fingers in a small pinching motion." At the time of arrest, Michelle also informed the officers that she had a nanny at home taking care of their six children and so the arresting officer called the nanny to inform that Johnny and Michelle "were going to jail and would not be home for some time."
It was reported that Johnny had agreed to take the breathalyzer test, however, his wife Michelle had advised him against the same. He tested twice and the results were .30 and .294.
