Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo, who has made $18,018,000 over his baseball career, was arrested Tuesday morning on a DUI charge.
Gallardo, a 27-year-old right-hander, was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near Miller Park when he was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. for driving slowly and deviating lanes. McLaughlin said Gallardo failed a field sobriety test and later registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, nearly three times the legal limit in Wisconsin (.08).
McLaughlin said Gallardo — who has no prior criminal record — will not face jail time but will receive citations of $300 for operating while intoxicated — first offense, with an extra $300 because of the level of intoxication and $178.80 for lane deviation.
Gallardo is 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA. The Brewers had an off day on Monday and are scheduled to face the Giants tonight in Milwaukee. Gallardo last pitched on Saturday against the Cardinals; he gave up 5 earned runs over 5 1/3 innings.
It looks like he was wearing the same Under Armour coat as he was wearing in February.
