Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan pleaded guilty to the charge of operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of .17 or greater in Grand Rapids, Michigan today.
The charges of providing false identification and driving the wrong way on a one-way street were dismissed.
Sheahan, who turned 21 December 7, was arrested October 29 in Grand Rapids after he was pulled over for driving the wrong way on Ottawa Avenue.
A clerk at the 61st District Court in Grand Rapids told MLive's Peter Wallner that Sheahan had to pay a $1,325 fine. He will be required to perform 49 hours of community service, attend a victim impact class, and be sentenced to 12 months probation.
Under Michigan law, a person found guilty of operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of .17 or more will have their driver's license suspended for a year.
Sheahan is in his first season with the Grand Rapids Griffins, where he has tallied four goals and four assists in 20 games.Tags: Detroit, Detroit Red Wings, Grand Rapids Griffins, Hockey, Ken Holland, NHL, Riley Sheahan
