Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan plead guilty on Thursday to the DUI charge he received on Oct. 29 in Grand Rapids. Sheahan plead guilty to driving a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of .17 or higher. Sheahan currently plays for the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Sheahan, who was 20 at the time of the arrest, was wearing a purple Teletubbies (Tinky Winky, for those familiar with the show) costume for Halloween with his teammate Brendan Smith's ID when he was pulled over in downtown Grand Rapids, Mich. Upon being tested, Sheahan registered a blood-alcohol level of .30. Due to his high blood-alcohol level, Sheahan was charged under Michigan's "super-drunk" DUI law. He will be sentenced after a presentencing investigation and will receive a one-year suspension of his driver's license.

Sheahan was the 21st overall selection of the 2010 NHL Draft. He has four goals and four assists in 20 games with the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League this season.
