"the Tv profile: ”Shame – regret me bitterly”"
"The beloved sportkommentatorn and golfprofilen Göran Zachrisson has been charged for aggravated drunken driving."
"the 80-year-old says that he is deeply remorseful."
"I am ashamed and have never felt this bad," he says."
"On 19 december, a few days before christmas, was arrested Göran Zachrisson at a police check at Djursholm, in the vicinity of their residence. The now 80-year-old sportkommentatorn and tv-the profile had alcohol in the blood and got after bladder control follow up to the station."
"He is now being prosecuted for aggravated driving under the influence."
"When Sportbladet reaches Zachrisson on Friday evening, he is very shaky voice and close to tears."
" There are better days and there are worse days. Right now it's worse days. For a long period I have not felt so good, " he says."
"He tells himself what happened on 19 december."
' I'd run a friend. Idiot that I am, I took the car even though I had been drinking. Then there was a check (a police check, red.amn) down here in Djursholm, where I was stopped. There was nothing dramatic in that way."
"You were not involved in the accident?"
" No, no, nothing like that!"
"Zachrisson don't remember how much he had drank, or what the alcohol content of the blood in the bladder control showed."
"– But I had drunk too much. It is so simple. I repent bitterly. I don't think that I have felt this bad. I am ashamed, " he says."
"Supported by employers"
"Zachrisson are now awaiting notification of when the trial will start. He says that he gets the legal help of a good friend who works as a lawyer. He also says that he himself heard of and told others about the matter for their employers, Viasat and Swedish Golf, as he continues to work for."
" And they support me in this, they want me to continue. I have called and told you exactly how it is and I have received enormous support both from my colleagues and of my near and dear ones, say ”Zache”."
"”do not Want to be public”"
"He greets that he now wants the legal process should be allowed to have its way, and that he then, should be allowed to live in peace and quiet seen to the circumstances."
" I want to really be pretty low in life. I would not want to be on these things, I don't want to be a public person, not in this way. But I have been guilty of this – and I can't do anything about it more than to undo me rough."
"Are you worried about the penalties? It is nevertheless a serious drink-driving you are arrested for?"
"– It may become as it gets. The worst is yet to the public, that this will be a thing in the media. I don't want it. I don't want to be in the spotlight. It took many years before I even showed me on tv, I've never liked that it should be about me. But now it is as it is, it is not going to come from, " says Göran Zachrisson."
