Gustavo Chacin Arrested

Postby sox 06 » Sun Mar 18, 2007 10:20 am

TAMPA, Fla. -- Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Gustavo Chacin was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Chacin was stopped by Tampa police early Friday morning, according to a copy of the charge report posted on the Hillsborough County sheriff's Web site.

The 26-year-old Chacin was booked for a misdemeanor and released from jail on $500 bond.

Police reports showed Chacin registered a blood-alcohol content of .150 and .152 in two consecutive readings. The state limit is .08.

"It's a serious mistake and we all make mistakes," manager John Gibbons said. "The justice system gets your attention pretty good these days, and they should."

The left-hander went 9-4 last season with a 5.05 ERA, but missed more than two months with elbow problems. Chacin is 23-14 in 53 career outings.

"Obviously he has had something happen and he is entitled to due process and whatever happens we just have to abide by the law," general manager J.P. Ricciardi said. "He made a mistake and we want to work with him, not against him."

This won't have an iota of impact on his performance this year.
