CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- NASCAR driver Michael Annett admitted to reporters this weekend that he had been drinking when he got into a crash Feb. 6.

The 24-year-old was arrested after, police say, he rear-ended a car at a red light in Mooresville.

According to the police report, Annett had a blood-alcohol level of .32 percent. That's four times the legal limit in North Carolina.

In Daytona, Fla., Sunday, Annett told reporters there's no excuse for his actions.

"I got behind the wheel. I had the keys in my hand. I turned the truck on," Annett said. "It was my choice, and it was a horrible one. Just fortunate enough that nobody got hurt."

NASCAR has placed Annett on probation for the remainder of the year. He's due in court on March 18.
