Brewers pitcher Gallardo cited for drunken driving Submitted: 04/16/2013
MILWAUKEE - 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 (mik-LOK'-lin) says deputies responded about 2 a.m. Tuesday to a report of a possibly intoxicated driver. She says Gallardo was driving 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 smelled like alcohol. 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.

A statement from the Brewers says the team expressed its disappointment to Gallardo and he is taking responsibility for his actions.
