Veteran ABC News reporter and political correspondent Sam Donaldson got arrested for DUI this month in Delaware. Bet you didn’t see that coming!

According to law enforcement, the 78-year-old was pulled over after he had driven onto the shoulder of the road. Officers detected the presence of alcohol.

Police performed a field sobriety test on Sam. He tanked.

Donaldson was arrested for DUI and was taken to a nearby station where he was booked and “released to an adult pending his appearance in court.”

He was said to be very cooperative during the incident. That’s nice at least. No word if Sam had been hanging out with Diane Sawyer drunk beforehand.
