Woods’s Agent Mark Steinberg Loses Driver’s License After Arrest
Steinberg, 44, was arraigned yesterday on aggravated driving while intoxicated and DWI charges in Ardsley Village Justice Court in Ardsley, New York, Patricia Basini, the court clerk, said in a telephone interview. His license was revoked and he is due to appear back in court on Jan. 25.
Steinberg had blood-alcohol content higher than 0.18, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 in New York state, when he was one of 11 people arrested on June 2 by police at a sobriety checkpoint off the New York State Thruway, according to the Ardsley Police Department.
Steinberg said in an e-mail that followed his arrest that “It’s a medical issue that I was dealing with. It’s not what you think.”
Steinberg is being represented by attorney Andrew Quinn, Basini said. A woman answering the phone at the office of Quinn, Mellea & Gioffre LLP in White Plains, New York, where an Andrew Quinn is a partner, declined to comment or say whether Steinberg is a client.
The 44-year-old Steinberg has represented Woods since 1999. He left New York-based IMG Worldwide in May 2011 and two months later became a partner at Excel Sports Management. Other golfers represented by the New York-based company are Woods’s niece, Cheyenne Woods, as well as U.S. PGA Tour players Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland.
