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.
