Miguel Cabrera‘s arrest for DUI last February was pretty spectacular, at least as far as all of the sordid details about the arrest were concerned. The resolution of it all is kind of boring, however: Cabrera was given a $500 fine and one year of probation yesterday. He also had his license suspended for a year.
The whole case seemed weird to me. Because not long after he was arrested, the Florida Highway Patrol released information about how Cabrera’s Range Rover allegedly forced cars off the road and forced an oncoming vehicle to take “evasive action and to go totally onto the grass shoulder in order not to hit the sports utility vehicle head-on.” In addition, he allegedly threatened to blow up the bar at which he was drinking and before his arrest and he told his arresting officers to “just [bleeping] kill me.”
Then, a couple months later he got his driver’s license back because there was apparently not any evidence that Cabrera was, you know, actually driving the car.
Strange. Scary. But now over. And hopefully this is the last run-in Cabrera ever has with the bottle for the rest of his life.
