Antiques Roadshow Appraiser Arrested for DUI
Leigh Keno, the popular antiques appraiser from “Antiques Roadshow,” has been granted participation in a weekend alcohol education program after a brief hearing. Just before Christmas, state police in New Hampshire received a call that a Range Rover was veering all over the road. Police responded to the scene and witnessed the driving for themselves. The silver vehicle was seen crossing lanes, slowing down and speeding up with no cause. Police initiated a traffic stop and approached the vehicle.
According to reports, the driver smelled heavily of alcohol and had his 17-year-old son in the front seat. When questioned, the driver who was identified as Keno claimed to have had only a single beer with dinner. Keno failed to perform field sobriety tests satisfactorily and was placed under arrest for driving under the influence and failure to keep his vehicle in his lane. He later refused to take a breath test.
An Alternative to Prison
Keno, who has been on “Antiques Roadshow” for the past 18 years, will be attending a program in New Hampshire sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Assistant State Attorney Tatiana Messina, who requested Keno’s enrollment in the program, said that the program is a very effective one. Keno did not make any comments to reporters as he left the courthouse.
