ABC News veteran Sam Donaldson arrested for DUI



tbd-samdonaldson122012.jpgAs a minor note on our Juice* police blotter, former ABC News White House correspondent Sam Donaldson was arrested for DUI way back on Dec. 1. Why so long getting the word out? Well, maybe if we had a newshound like Sam Donaldson on the case ...

The AP reports the 78-year-old was stopped in the coastal town of Lewes, Del., for a traffic violation and failed sobriety tests. He was charged with driving under the influence and later released.

The TV veteran lives in McLean, Va., about 110 miles west of Lewes. Sounds like a weekend road trip kind of went off the rails. Donaldson didn't respond to the AP's calls for comment. Perhaps Diane Sawyer should give him a buzz.
