WESTPORT, Conn. (WFAN/AP) — YES Network television host Bob Lorenz has been charged with drunken driving in Connecticut where police say he was found passed out in his car in his hometown of Westport.
The 48-year-old Lorenz was arrested early Wednesday morning. Police say they found him slumped over the wheel of his car and when they woke him up he drove away slowly and nearly hit a utility pole.
Officers say his speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.
Lorenz hosts pregame and postgame shows for the Yankees and Nets. He was arraigned Wednesday at Norwalk Superior Court and his case was continued to Feb. 29.
According to The Westport Hour, Lorenz chose not to disclose his occupation to the court bail commissioner.
After his arraignment, Lorenz was reportedly asked if he was a host on YES.
“No. I get that all the time,” he replied, according to the Hour.
It’s not clear if he has a lawyer. A Yes Network spokesman declined to comment.
