Matthew Barnaby, the ESPN hockey analyst and former Sabres agitator, was arrested Sunday on a charge of driving while intoxicated in the town of Clarence, the Erie County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies responded to a 911 call of an SUV driving erratically without a front tire. They discovered a black Porsche Cayenne driving on the rim, causing sparks. The vehicle had significant front end damage and was missing the driver’s side front tire.
Deputies said Barnaby, 38, failed multiple field sobriety tests then refused to take a breath test. A refusal results in immediate revocation of a New York State license.
Barnaby has been released to the custody of his attorney with appearance tickets for Town of Clarence court.
