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 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.
