Nights Like This Michael Wright Probably Wishes He Didn’t Run Into A Police Car Drunk

Michael Wright will always and forever be Eddie Kane from “The Five Heartbeats” in my mind, and from his antics Sunday morning they may have a little somethin’ somethin’ in common. According to TMZ, the actor was arrested in New York City for driving while intoxicated — after he ran into a police car.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Wright — who starred in the classic movie “The Five Heartbeats” — was trying to park his 1978 black Rolls Royce in Manhattan when he hit the car that had two officers sitting inside.

We’re told the officers went to have a word with Wright and detected an odor of alcohol on his breath. After the field sobriety test didn’t go Wright’s way, the officers arrested him.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Wright’s blood alcohol level was well above the legal limit.

We’re told both officers were taken to a local hospital to be checked out after the accident.

I wonder if when cops were booking Michael he turned to the camera for his mugshot and went “Diiiiiiinnng”

On a serious note though, I’m going to need him to catch a cab like everyone else in New York City.

    This story makes me sad. He’s got more than a drinking problem. While in my car last summer, I saw him on 10th ave, just off 42nd, totally totally strung out in the middle of the afternoon. It was jarring to say the least. I hope he gets the help he needs.
