He crashed into a car in front of him at a McDonald’s drive-thru and told police his foot slipped off the pedal but he had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Michael was taken to jail on a $6,000 bond after he failed sobriety tests and would not take a breathalyzer. In a statement out yesterday he said, “I’m so very sorry for the disappointment these events have caused. I know it will take time; but I will do everything I can to rebuild your trust.”
