Miguel Cabrera was on the right path after the Detroit Tigers slugger was arrested for DUI in 2009 the night before a key season-ending series – now he has been arrested again for DUI in Florida.
The 27-year old Venezuelan native was spotted late last night, in a stalled vehicle southeast of Lakeland by officers who stopped to investigate. The very uncooperative Cabrera was found inside the car, that smelled of alcohol, who continued to drink from a bottle of scotch in front of the officers. He was due to start Spring training this Saturday.
To make matters worse police reports note that Cabrera “kept running out in the road with his hands up” and threw himself on one of the officers. In addition to the DUI he was charged with ‘resisting an officer without violence.’
