Miguel Cabrera Drove Erratically???

Posted: April 19, 2011 in Baseball, Uncategorized

This latest Chapter in the Miguel Cabrera Off-Season DUI (Alleged) Arrest amounts to nothing more than heresay. It’s long been time to simply let Miguel Cabrera do exactly what he’s doing, and that is perform on the field like the Future Hall-of-Famer the Tigers signed to one of the 10 richest contracts in Baseball history.


The State Attorney’s Office in Florida released new evidence in Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera’s DUI case today, including a 911 call made a by a driver on the road the February night he was arrested in Ft. Pierce, Fla.

The caller reported seeing a black Range Rover nearly hit somebody head-on and said the SUV was driving all over the road and was speeding up, slowing down and stopping in the middle of the road.

“He’s got smoke all coming out from his car,” the man said while on the phone with dispatch.

The call came in at 10:44 p.m., Feb. 16 — about 30 minutes before deputies with the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office in Florida arrested Cabrera on suspicion of drunken driving and resisting an officer without violence.

The State Attorney’s Office also released a synopsis of sworn statements of two drivers on the road that night. One of the statements was from a man who said he saw the incident and called 911.

Previously released police documents said Cabrera’s SUV was pulled to the side of the road when deputies arrived on the scene. Deputies said Cabrera had an odor of alcohol on his breath, and his eyes were bloodshot and watery.

A plea of not guilty has been entered on Cabrera’s behalf. The Free Press was unable to reach Cabrera’s attorney, Michael Kessler, for comment this afternoon.
