“If my name was Joe Smith, this would not have happened. I was not driving a car. I was parked. The keys weren’t even in the ignition."
Deerfield Police call BS on Son of Ditka's claim, claiming in the police report that they saw him stagger out of his Hummer H3 (not surprised a Ditka drives a Hummer) smelled strongly of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test.
This isn't Son of Ditka's first incident involving drink. He pleaded guilty to battery in 1998 for pushing his girlfriend at the time because he was upset at a football game he was watching. Mike Ditka has had his share of alcohol-related incidents over the years, and it's a site policy for us to run this photo with every post related to Da Coach.
Looks like Son of Ditka inherited more than just his fathers facial features and widow's peak.
