UPDATE, 4/10: The not-so-tame police report is up.

UPDATE, 4/6 12:15 p.m.: Hollywood Police Department has confirmed that Rosenberg was arrested Thursday on alcohol-related DUI charges, but that the police report would not be ready until next week. Broward Court Records now also indicate there are as-yet unfiled charges for DUI and driving with a suspended license against him.

Original post, 4/5 8:57 p.m.:
Sports radio personality Sid Rosenberg was arrested Thursday in Hollywood on charges of driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license, according to several websites that automatically collect police booking data.

While there are no charges listed in online Broward County Court records, florida.arrests.org has a listing for a "Sidney Rosenburg" with a birthdate that matches the one on file for "Sidney Rosenberg" -- spelled the same way the radio host's is -- in records of traffic tickets for improper use of the carpool lane, failure to wear a seat belt, and careless driving.

Mugshots.com has a listing (with the charges included) with a similarly misspelled last name, but the middle name matches those tickets as well.

Also, there's a picture of him.

While the mug shot indicates Rosenberg was arrested, it's not clear if any charges have been, or will be, filed. A spokesman for the Hollywood Police Department couldn't be reached to confirm the arrest late Thursday. If it's helpful for comparison, here's a picture of Rosenberg, the afternoon host on WQAM, on the cover of his 2010 book in which "radio's bad boy tells it like it is":

Really Sid, fetal position? Did you p-iss yourself too?

I think he's a jerk, no doubt.  I cannot even listen to him as he doesn't make any sense.  Go back to New York.  What a low life

What a jerk. He had everything going for him.  A pretty wife, kids, and now at Tootis's Strip Club in the middle of a day.  QAM should background check their personalities before they hire.  The same was true for Jeff DeForst, who is now on a 7 - 10 p.m. slot at 940 A.M.  He went down hill after the Miccos. incident.

Unlistenable trash, hope he never pollutes the airwaves anywhere ever again.  Good riddance, scumbag!

Why is the police report not ready until next week? If this was any normal person, it wouldbe done immediately before leaving the jail. If he has more than 1 DUI, it should be jail for80 plus days, 100 hours of AA, 150 hours of community service, and a large fine. Driving banfor 5 years. That's for any ordinary person.

I believe the police had to redact information from the report, which, when you're a government agency, takes much longer than the 10 minutes it should. I could have snagged it the day after, but the courthouse was closed for Good Friday.

He was in the street curled up in fetal position, sucking his thumb and crying. G-ds honest truth.  Follow me gentlemen, boycott WQAM as long as Ronsenberg is on the station. There are two other sports station and they support Miami's teams not New Yawks. And besides they don't spit all over you when they talk to you.

In the only other reporting describing this incident, Sid was NOT driving. He was found under the influence behind his car on the ground crying in a fetal position trying to throw up. The way I see it, if anything here's a guy who realized he had a problem and stopped driving, which is to be commended. It may be illegal to be publicly drunk in a public thorughfare blocking traffic drunk, but its not DUI. I believe he has confessed to addiction/ dependency issues in the past. Even if the allegations are true, it just means he's still dealing with the disease. That just makes him one of countless media personalities who have succumbed to addiction with several relapses along the way. I don't know his record, I hope for his sake he isn't sentenced to the tough love approach eg Robert Downey, jr. or Lindsay Lohan.
