Hungry Bloodshot Eyes

9/10/2008 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Remember that '80s song "Hungry Eyes"? The guy who recorded it was busted in an epic DUI.



Eric Carmen was popped Tuesday at 7:00 PM in Orange, Ohio after the dude hit a fire hydrant. The first clue he was wasted -- when cops asked him for his ID, he handed them a credit card. Cops then found a half-empty bottle of Grey Goose in the front seat.

According to the police report, Carmen, who was also in the Raspberries ('memba "Overnight Sensation"), blew a .23, nearly three times the legal limit.

We got the dashcam video and it's definitely worth a look at. It's his second DUI.

Oh, Eric! I love him! So disappointed to see this! Why do some people with everything throw it all away? He is so wasted he could have easily killed someone. This is not cool, dude...wake up!

Drunks attempting to dance on tables or snort maraschino cherries up there noses are sometimes humorous.

Drunks behind the wheel are never funny.

I'm saddened TMZ didn't utilize the obvious "Make Me Lose Control" joke.

You're forgetting his biggest hit, All By Myself.
I LOVED this guy. I hope he gets some help.

"All By Myself" was a huge hit and a great song back in the '70's...in fact, I still have the record on 45! I was stunned when an American Idol contestant performed it last season and they gave all the credit to Celine Dion, who recorded a COVER of it. I was like "Wait, Celine Dion? Uh-uh, that was Eric Carmen!"

I'm glad he didn't injure or kill anyone, and I hope he gets the help he so obviously needs.
