Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving after failing to cooperate with authorities at around 11pm in Fort Pierce, Florida on Wednesday (February 16)- mug shot above.
The 27 year-old was inside the vehicle on the side of the road with smoke coming from the engine when the cops found him. They smelled alcohol and immediately noticed Miguel’s slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and flushed face.
Miguel had a bad attitude, was argumentative and belligerent as he refused to cooperate. He started asking, “Do you know who I am? You don’t know anything about my problems.” Yeah, Miguel’s problems come in a bottle of scotch.
The MLB player, whose teammates are concerned about his behavior and fear he might be falling off the wagon, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and resisting an officer without violence, and cited for carrying an open alcohol container in a motor vehicle. Miguel was released on a $1,350 bond on Thursday (Feb. 17).
