Michael Wright

'Five Heartbeats' Star

Busted for DWI

EXCLUSIVE

1104_michael_wright_gettyMichael Wright hand-wrapped the NYPD an early Christmas present this morning when he gave them the easiest DWI arrest ever ... by hitting a police car ... TMZ has learned. 

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.

The drunk says: ‘Okay, let’s get started.

Thank God it wasn't his fellow 5 Heartbeats co star Leon! What has Leon been doing these 22 years? I felt that All The Right Moves could have been a better movie if it featured less Tom Cruise and more Leon. The movie should have been more focused on Shadow going to play at West Virginia and how it would affect his cheerleader girlfriend who would be staying behind
