Brewers Pitcher Yovani Gallardo Arrested On Suspicion Of Drunk Driving

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo, who has won 33 games over the last two seasons with the team, has been cited in a drunken driving incident in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee County sheriff’s spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin says deputies responded early Tuesday morning to a report of a possibly intoxicated driver. Police said they saw a car driven by Gallardo going at a slow speed down a freeway.

McLaughlin quotes the arrest report as saying Gallardo, who allegedly told police that he had a few beers, had red eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. His blood-alcohol level was 0.22, police said, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08.

Neither the Brewers not Gallardo have commented on the incident.
