Longtime NHL player Todd Bertuzzi was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence last weekend in Michigan, TMZ reports.

The 46-year-old was reportedly swerving all over the road and ran a red light before he was pulled over Saturday morning in Auburn Hills.

Responding officers believed Bertuzzi was under the influence of alcohol, but he refused a breathalyzer test, according to TMZ. He reportedly showed signs of impairment while undergoing other field sobriety tests.

Bertuzzi was eventually arrested and taken to Oakland County Jail, per TMZ. Police reportedly received a warrant for a blood draw, but the results are currently unknown.

The former Vancouver Canucks star is best remembered for sucker-punching Steve Moore and slamming his head into the ice during a game against the Colorado Avalanche in 2004. The NHL suspended Bertuzzi for 20 games, and he pleaded guilty to assault. Moore suffered three fractured vertebrae among other injuries and never played pro hockey again.

Bertuzzi also played for the New York Islanders, Florida Panthers, Detroit Red Wings, Anaheim Ducks, and Calgary Flames over his 1,159-game career.
