Padres infielder Everth Cabrera was arrested Wednesday morning for driving under the influence of marijuana. TMZ reports:
A rep for the California Highway Patrol confirms … U.S. border patrol agents initially made contact with the 27-year-old near a checkpoint on the 94 Freeway around 12:30 AM.
We’re told the agents suspected something was wrong — and contacted the CHP to check things out.
After CHP arrived to the scene, deputies were convinced Cabrera was under the influence of marijuana and arrested him for DUI.
Cabrera has spent a lot of time on the disabled list this season, playing in only 90 games and posting a line of .232/.272/.300.
In 2012 he was charged with domestic violence in Arizona, but charges were ultimately dropped. Last year he was suspended for 50 games a result of his connection to the Biogenesis scandal. Maybe in 2015 he’ll have an uneventful year.
