And now, things have taken another bad turn for Khabibulin.
Khabibulin was arrested Feb. 8 in Arizona and charged with impaired driving and speeding.
Per the Edmonton Journal:
After agreeing to take the standard Field Sobriety Test as well as consenting to take a blood test, Khabibulin, who had season-ending back surgery on Jan. 14, was cited for a blood-alcohol level of .08 or more. He was also charged with exceeding the speed limit by more than 20 miles per hour.
None of the charges have been proven in court.
Radar clocked Khabibulin driving his black Ferrari 70 mph in a 45-mph zone, says a police report filed by officer B. Patterson, the arresting officer. He said he asked Khabibulin if he knew why he had been stopped.
"Speed," Khabibulin was quoted as saying in the police report.
When Patterson asked Khabibulin if he knew how fast he was going, Khabibulin answered "80."
The investigation report notes that Patterson wrote down that Khabibulin's speech was 'slow,' his eyes 'water and bloodshot' and that he had a 'moderate' odour of intoxicating liquor.
Khabibulin admitted to consuming "one glass" of wine.
The Oilers goalie was then handcuffed and his vehicle impounded.
Khabibulin also failed to provide police with proper insurance papers. He is the second former Hawk arrested for driving under the influence recently. Chris Chelios was charged with a DUI after being stopped in the western suburbs in December. But the charges look like they are going to be dismissed against Chelios.
