'American Gladiators' Host -- Jousting with DUI

1/11/2011 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Adamle -- the longtime host of the original "American Gladiators" -- was arrested around 1AM Monday morning on suspicion of DUI ... and cops say he was acting so "erratic" they tested him for drugs.

Mike Adamle Arrested

Cops say 61-year-old Adamle -- a former Chicago Bears running back -- was pulled over after blowing through a stop sign in his 2002 BMW just outside the Chicago area. When cops approached the vehicle, they suspected Adamle had been boozing.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, Adamle failed a field sobriety test and was taken to a nearby police station... where he exhibited "erratic behavior" and was subsequently taken to a hospital for a drug screen. The results from the drug test are pending.

Adamle was eventually arrested and charged with disobeying a traffic control device, DUI and failing to notify the Security State's office of an address change.

Adamle is due back in court on Valentine's Day.

Wow! This is getting crazy all the drunk driving going on! Every day TMZ has one if not several drunks driving. This is not ok. Everyone is so anal about planning their retirement,their weekend, their decor, their wardrobe however they are too stupid to plan that if they have so much as one drink not to drive. If you are going to raise the glass, do it in your own home you a**!

Atleast this explains why he sucks so much when he does sports on NBC5 here in Chicago.
