Last we heard from Todd Helton he was hunting with Peyton Manning. Now he's hunting for a lawyer. The Rockies legend was popped in Thornton, reportedly at 3 am this morning, and arrested for DUI. Helton is not only the most recent Denver athlete arrested for the old glug, glug, vroom, vroom. He's the most surprising. Nobody saw this one coming, that's for sure.

The Rockies have released the following statement.

UPDATE: Todd Helton has released a statement of his own:

“Last evening I exercised poor judgment and was charged with drinking and driving after driving to a gas station near my house. I am very sorry and embarrassed by my actions. I hold myself to a high standard and take my responsibility as a public figure very seriously. My entire career I have worked to set a positive example for my family and in our community and I fell far short of this standard.
I sincerely ask my family, the Colorado Rockies Organization, Major League Baseball and the community to accept my apology. I make no excuses and accept full responsibility for my actions. I humbly ask your forgiveness.”
