GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan faces charges under Michigan's tougher "super drunk" designation following a traffic stop during which police discovered him clad in a Teletubby costume.

According to a Grand Rapids police report obtained by MLive.com (http://bit.ly/Y0NfXE ), Sheahan twice registered a blood alcohol level of 0.30 per cent following his arrest on Oct. 29. The driving limit is 0.08 per cent and the benchmark for the "super drunk" designation is 0.17 per cent.

Police say he was wearing the costume of a purple Teletubby, also known as Tinky Winky, during the stop. The 20-year-old Grand Rapids Griffins centre from St. Catharines, Ontario, played in college at Notre Dame.

The "super drunk" charge carries a penalty of 180 days in jail and possible deportation. Sheahan's next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 13.
