Wisconsin LB Casillas Cited for Drunken Moped Driving

ESPN.com is reporting that Wisconsin linebacker Jonathan Casillas was cited last month for drunk driving. On a moped. Commence comedic gold:

Casillas, who missed the eighth-ranked Badgers' first two games because of a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, was stopped by a university police officer on Aug. 24 just after midnight. A breath test showed his blood alcohol concentration to be 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08.

Casillas, 21, received three citations -- first-offense drunken driving, driving with a prohibited alcohol concentration, and driving with two persons on a mo-ped.
Casillas was named to Phil Steele's preseason first-team All-Big Ten squad, which is enough to make me scared of the guy. That is, until I found out he was driving a moped. The Ace of Sports has uncovered an exclusive photo of Casillas the evening of the incident, apparently before he had picked up his passenger.

Wait one second. He was driving drunk AND driving with a prohibited alcohol concentration? What kind of monster could possibly do both at the same time?
