INSPIRATION FOR MOVIE JERRY MAGUIRE BOOKED FOR DUI: Sports Agent Leigh Steinberg, who was the inspiration for Tom Cruise’s main character in the film “Jerry Maguire”, has seen his sports representation practice go into steady decline thanks to the corporatizing of the business.
And SbB contributor Tom Hoffarth of the LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS has more bad news today, as he reports “Steinberg was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after an early-morning crash today in Newport Beach on Pacific Coast Highway.”
“Police say the 58-year-old Steinberg struck three parked cars around 1 a.m. while driving his 2002 Mercedes ML 500 sports utility vehicle home near the Balboa Bay Club.”
A 2002 Mercedes? Yeah, it’s getting real bad for Steinberg.
