Ex-National Hockey League goalie Clint Malarchuk was charged Saturday with driving under the influence in Gardnerville with a blood-alcohol content reportedly three times the legal limit in Nevada.
Malarchuk was stopped just before 10 p.m. Saturday when a deputy on patrol on Toler at Stodick Park observed a pickup truck cross the double-yellow line for about 100 feet before it swerved back. The vehicle crossed the yellow line a second time at Orchard Road.
A driver identified as Malarchuk reportedly denied he’d been drinking and told the officer he hadn’t had a drink in two years.
The driver agreed to a field sobriety test and stumbled as he stepped out of the truck. A preliminary test indicated a breath-alcohol content of .233, according to reports.
