Dash cam video of Riley Sheahan arrested in a purple Teletubby costume

On Tuesday police reports surfaced about an incident involving Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan, 20, and his arrest for a DUI back on Oct. 29.

Sheahan's blood alchohol level was four times the legal limit (.30 -- which qualifies as "superdrunk" status) and he was found with a driver's license belonging to his 23-year-old teammate, Brendan Smith

Making matters even more embarrassing for Sheahan was the fact that when he was pulled over he was wearing a purple Teletubby costume. 

WZZN 13 in Grand Rapids has the dash cam video of Sheahan being pulled out of his car still in the costume. And here it is.

Sheahan first emerges from the car, in full costume, around the two-minute mark.
