Sam Donaldson -- the veteran ABC newsman and political correspondent -- was arrested for DUI in Delaware earlier this month. 

According to law enforcement, 78-year-old Donaldson was pulled over just before 8pm on December 1 after he had driven onto the shoulder of the road.

During the stop, the officer detected the presence of alcohol and decided to perform a field sobriety test on Sam ... which he bombed.

Donaldson was eventually arrested for DUI and was taken to a nearby station where he was booked and released.

Cops say the newsman was "released to an adult pending his appearance in court."

For the record -- law enforcement notes that Donaldson was very cooperative during the incident.

I don't buy into government BS. But I do believe what insurance companies say. They excel at assessing risks and compete with each other to do so accurately.

At least where I live, getting in an accident increases your insurance costs MORE than having DUI's.

If you have ever caused an accident, you are more of a danger than someone who is merely a drunk driver.

From the looks of all the broken veins on his face, this drunken episode ain't his first time. He loves the hard stuff.

He was released because his wig and eyebrows were too much to take!

He was so critical of everyone else during his career. Hope the newsmen treat him like he treated others. With contempt.

No sympathy for anyone who has enough funds to hire a driver if they're gonna party. There should be higher fines/jail time when that happens.
