Michaels arrested for reported DUI in Calif.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.

Police in Southern California say that NBC Sports announcer Al Michaels has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

Santa Monica police Sgt. Thomas McLaughlin says Michaels was taken into custody Friday night. McLaughlin could provide no additional details.

Greg Hughes, a spokesman for NBC Sports, says the company “is aware of the situation” and has been in contact with Michaels. Hughes had no further comment.

A call Sunday by The Associated Press to Michaels’ agent was not immediately returned.

An Emmy Award winner and broadcaster on “Sunday Night Football,” the 68-year-old Michaels spent nearly three decades at ABC Sports before moving to NBC in 2007.

Michaels worked NFL games and other sports for ABC and called “Monday Night Football” for nearly 20 years. He also is known for his call of the U.S.-Soviet Union “Miracle on Ice” game at the 1980 Winter Olympics.

‘Oblivion’ makes $38.2M debut

LOS ANGELES

Movie fans slipped into “Oblivion” as the Tom Cruise sci-fi thriller led Hollywood with a $38.2 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday.

That domestic haul comes on top of $33.7 million “Oblivion” added in overseas markets, where the film began rolling out a week earlier. “Oblivion” raised its overseas total to $112 million and its worldwide receipts to $150.2 million.

Though many people Friday were caught up in coverage of the manhunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon explosions, it seems to have had little effect on how the film fared.

“Oblivion” took in $13.3 million on opening day Friday and $14.9 million Saturday. That 12 per- cent increase is not unusual for big new releases, which typically do better business on Saturday than Friday.
