Former Colorado Rockies star Todd Helton has received a two-day jail sentence after he pleaded guilty last month to driving under the influence.
Police in Tennessee cited Helton for DUI in March 2019 after he crashed his truck into a telephone pole, per the Knoxville News Sentinel’s Hayes Hickman.
Authorities said they couldn’t conduct sobriety tests at the time but that Helton had confirmed to taking Ambien four hours before the accident.
TMZ notes that “in the police report, cops say they found a plastic cup that reeked of booze inside” Helton’s vehicle.
Shortly after his arrest, Helton’s attorney, Stephen Ross Johnson, confirmed he had entered a treatment facility.
