Atlanta Braves pitcher Derek Lowe was arrested last night for driving under the influence, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Lowe was stopped last night around 10:00 pm in the ATL. A spokesperson for the Georgia State Patrol shared brief details on the incident.

The trooper "detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage"  and gave Lowe a field sobriety test, Wright said.  Lowe refused to take a state-administered alcohol test, he said.

Wright said Lowe was also charged with reckless driving and failure to maintain lane. 


There's no word on how this event will affect him on the field. The Braves begin a three-game series with the Phillies next Friday. If everything stays as is, Lowe should start in the first of those games.

Way to go, champ.

UPDATE! Derek Lowe was racing somebody.

  1. Wow according to that picture teams are getting a little outta hand when celebrating one regular season win against the Phillies this year… but I guess it is a rare feat so they should celebrate while they can.

  2. “A BAC higher than your ERA is no way to go through life, son.”

  3. Is he the next Kenny Powers? (They say the next season of East Bound and Down will be the last.)
    And Kyle-Boy, as many times as I make fun of your girlie-like ability to be unable to hold you liqour, at least you haven’t stooped this low (yet).
