Cabrera arrested


FORT PIERCE, Fla. – Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was arrested on drunken driving charges in Florida.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office says the 27-year-old’s car engine was smoking alongside a road late Wednesday when a deputy spotted the vehicle.

According to the arrest report, Cabrera smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and took a swig from a bottle of scotch in front of a deputy.

Police say the All-Star first baseman repeatedly refused to cooperate.
