Miguel Cabrera, 27-year-old first baseman for the Detroit Tigers, has had problems with drinking for a while. Well, it looks like ol’ Miguel had a bit of a relapse. He was arrested late Wednesday night on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and two counts of resisting an officer without violence.
The cops found Cabrera in his vehicle on the side of the road with the engine smoking. Miguel was having some trouble speaking clearly. According to the report: “His eyes were bloodshot and watery and his speech was…heavily slurred.”
The cops asked Cabrera who was with him, and his response was, “I’m going to (expletive) kill him.” Yet, deputies didn’t see anyone else around, or in the vehicle, according to the affidavit. Getting so shitfaced that you make death threats to nonexistent people in front of police. TFM?
Police say Cabrera picked up a bottle of Scotch and began drinking it in front of them, refused a breathalyzer test, and then resisted when being placed under arrest. He repeatedly asked police, “Do you know who I am?” He had to be held down while refusing to comply and said again, “Do you know who I am? You don’t know anything about my problems.” When police asked him to get into the car he said, “Fuck you. Do you know who I am?” This was after he’d given police his passport, so at this point, they knew who he was. Well, the cops reached their threshold of shit talking, hit Mr. Cabrera with “3-4 knee spikes into his left thigh muscle,” and threw his drunk ass in the car.
Sleep it off, Miguel.
