Never mind the fact that Greg Dobbs broke up his no-hit bid in the seventh inning, here's video, via 11 Alive in Atlanta, of Derek Lowe's DUI arrest on April 29th.
It's 20 minutes of sheer awkwardness. Lowe not once admitted having a drink. Instead, he spent the entire time talking about how he was golfing and lives nearby.
About 10 minutes in, he finally dropped the baseball player line. The conversation that ensued was nothing short of hilarious:
Lowe: Once you say you play baseball, you're already guilty. I play for the Braves, so there you go.
Cop: I never heard anything about you playing baseball, you said you played golf tonight, today.
Lowe: I do, I play… Derek Lowe for the Atlanta Braves.
Cop: I don't know Derek Lowe from nobody. I don't even watch baseball.
Lowe: That's what I do.
Cop: I don't care nothing about baseball. You say you're a player?
Cop: What position do you play?
Lowe: Starting pitcher, for the Braves.
Cop: What's your name again? [That's about the time she walked away from me…]
Lowe: Derek Lowe.
The name's Lowe, Derek Lowe. Yeah, that approach didn't work. Bonus: We did find out that Lowe has ADD. I guess Stan Hochman's story about Shane Victorino's triumph over a disease that affects over 100 Major Leaguers isn't that incredible…
The video of Lowe's arrest is after the jump.
