Miguel Cabrera, All-Star first baseman for the Detroit Tigers, was arrested on suspicion of a DUI.

Cabrera was in St. Lucie County, Florida when his vehicle was having issues; he was pulled over on the side of the road when officers noticed smoke coming out of the hood of his car.  According to Fox Sports Detroit, officers noticed signs of intoxication such as a strong odor of alcohol, his speech was slurred and his eyes were bloodshot and watery.  

Officers noticed Cabrera take a drink out of a bottle of James Buchanan Scotch before he walked towards the road with his hands up.  When officers asked him to return to the vehicle, he did not comply and officers handcuffed him as he resisted.   Cabrera was booked into St. Lucie County jail but released on a $1,350 bond.
