ESPN hockey analyst Matthew Barnaby was arrested Monday morning and charged with DWI after being pulled over for driving erratically in Clarence, N.Y.

Barnaby’s Porsche was missing a front tire and was sparking as it ran on in the front rim.

According to WGRZ, Erie County Sheriff’s Department, the former Buffalo Sabres player failed several sobriety tests and refused to take a breath test, which immediately cause his license to get revoked.

A spokesperson for ESPN said that the network is looking into the incident.
Earlier on Sunday, Barnaby tweeted a photo of himself watching the Jets-Redskins game with some friends at a bar.

According to the Huffington Post, Barnaby, 38, was arrested earlier this year after an incident with his estranged wife. He pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal mischief, criminal trespass and harassment.

Barnaby was ordered to complete 500 hours of community service and continue anger management counseling.
