Yankees Pitcher Arrested for DUI in Tampa

Michael Pineda was speeding down the highway in a Nissan SUV on Monday when he caught the police’s attention. The pitcher was swerving from side to side in his lane, and was violating various traffic rules in his attempt to get home. When an on-duty officer saw him swerving, he proceeded to pull Pineda over. When the baseball star rolled down his window, the police reported that he had glassy eyes and his breath reeked like alcohol. He was tested for his BAC, and merited a whopping .128 on his test. Drivers must have under a .08 BAC in order to legal while driving with alcohol in their system. Pineda’s high alcohol content was enough incriminating evidence to place him under arrest.

The athlete was taken to jail, where he was released on a $500 bond. He says that he was in Tampa because he was practicing at the Yankees spring training site. The right-hander was acquired by the Mariners in an off-season trade and has not yet pitched in a major league game with the team. He will face charges in connection with his crime, but various reports assume that it will not affect his chances to play with the Yankees. If you have been arrested for a DUI like Pineda has, you are probably discouraged and irritated.

Unfortunately, you may lose your license for a small amount of time because of your DUI. Yet with the help of a knowledgeable attorney, you could reduce your sentences or possibly eliminate your charges altogether!
