CHL's Arizona Sundogs Co-Owner Sean Bradlee Fain Arrested for DUI

Sean Bradlee Fain, co-owner of the Central Hockey League’s Arizona Sundogs and Fain Signature Group principal, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence this past Thursday, reports The Daily Courier.

Prescott Valley police officers said they were responding to a report of an impaired driver when they found Fain in a pickup truck with a flat tire near Highway 89A around midnight early Thursday morning.

Fain allegedly had driven over a median, damaged bushes and trees, and fled the scene of the accident, according to a police report. Responding officers say they noticed that Fain was showing signs of intoxication, and his blood-alcohol content was later found to be approximately 0.150.

Fain reportedly told police that he had just returned from a hockey game, and he had consumed alcohol earlier in the evening, according to The Courier.

Perhaps he was drinking away the Sundogs’ 2-1 shootout loss to the Wichita Thunder earlier that evening?

The Arizona Sundogs are the Central Hockey League affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Phoenix Coyotes, and are currently playing in their sixth season. Fain is not the first person associated with the Coyotes to be connected to driving under the influence in Arizona. Former Phoenix Coyotes goalie Nikolai Khabibulin did time in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s infamous tent city for a drunk driving conviction.

Fain was charged with a DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, and criminal damage, which are all misdemeanors.

Like Khabibulin, Sean Bradlee Fain will likely need an experienced DUI attorney to defend him against the charges.
