(Newser) – Al Michaels, the legendary sportscaster who asked, "Do you believe in miracles?" at the 1980 Winter Olympics as the US hockey team beat the Soviets, was arrested Friday night and charged with a DUI, CNN reports. Sources tell TMZ Michaels went through a DUI checkpoint in Santa Monica, California, around 10pm, and officers gave him a field sobriety test after smelling alcohol on him. Sources say his blood alcohol level was between a .08 and a .09. Michaels, who currently announces on NBC's Sunday Night Football, was taken to jail and released early the next morning. He was reportedly very cooperative throughout the ordeal.
