Ooops. Promoter slash construction kingpin Michael Capponi was taken into police custody Friday morning for driving under the influence after a night at work, promoting a Grey Goose-sponsored Asher Roth party at WALL at the W South Beach. According to the Miami Dade Corrections Inmate Profile System, Capponi was released from jail Friday night on a bond of $1,000, which is chump change for the purveyor of champagne wishes, caviar dreams and concrete. We guess this release is one party the promoter may not want to throw.
But that being said, we just spoke with Capponi, who gives us his side of the story, saying: "I was pulled over at 3 a.m. and asked to do a roadside sobriety test. According to the officer, I failed. I went to the station where I blew .06 the first time and .06 the second time. The officer then insisted that, because of my past as an addict, I must be on drugs. At that point, I volunteered a urine sample and passed. Despite the fact that I passed the breathalyzer tests, they decided to keep me in over night. Yet I still have my driver's license. I look forward to a great day in court as there will be many lawsuits."
