Brewers’ Gallardo Arrested For Drunken Driving

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo has been cited for drunken driving after authorities said he drove with a blood-alcohol content nearly three times the legal limit.

Milwaukee County sheriff’s spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin  says deputies responded Tuesday about 2:10 a.m. to a report of a possibly intoxicated driver. She says Gallardo was driving alone down a Milwaukee freeway at 40 mph in a 55-mph zone.

McLaughlin quotes the arrest report as saying Gallardo had red glassy eyes, slurred speech and an odor of alcohol. The report says Gallardo acknowledged having a few beers.

The report says his blood-alcohol level was 0.22, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08.

McLaughlin says Gallardo faces nearly $800 in fines.

Messages left with the Brewers on Tuesday were not immediately returned.
