Everth Cabrera is in more legal trouble

Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera was arrested for domestic violence once, but had the charges dismissed. He was a Biogenesis All-Star. Then, late this season, he was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana. Now his legal problems have gotten worse:

San Diego’s District Attorney’s office has filed a criminal complaint against Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera for resisting an officer’s order by force in September when he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana, a spokesman said Thursday morning.

We sure that was marijuana in his system? I have been told that it’s not exactly a substance that makes one aggressive. Oh well.

The Padres were already considering other shortstop options this winter, partially because of Cabrera’s legal problems but mostly because of his health and production problems. This doesn’t help him, I don’t figure.
