According to the New York Post, injured Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was arrested for DUI in Florida:
…Pineda was busted for DUI in Tampa, Fla., on a busy road early this morning after a cop spotted his speeding, “weaving” Nissan SUV driving without its headlights on, authorities said.
The burly Pineda, 23, “had a fixed gaze and his eyes were bloodshot, watery and glassy,” a Tampa police officer wrote after pulling the 23-year-old hurler over at 2:35 a.m. on North Dale Mabry Highway.
“I could smell a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath, and his speech was slurred,” the cop wrote about Pineda, who was an All-Star in his rookie season last year with the Seattle Mariners.
The Dominican Republic native’s blood-alcohol level was found to be .128 and .125 in two separate readings, according to police records.
He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, and released on a $500 bond from jail shortly before noon today.
