Eric DuBose - this can't be real right?

Postby Mr.3000 » Thu Mar 24, 2005 1:35 pm

Orioles pitcher Eric DuBose was charged with driving under the influence in Sarasota, Fla., on Monday morning, about 12 hours before he was scheduled to start a game at the team's minor league complex. According to the police report, a deputy saw DuBose's truck swerve across the yellow line three times. Upon pulling him over, the deputy noticed that DuBose's speech was slurred, he exhibited poor balance, had watery and blood-shot eyes and an "odor of alcoholic beverage." When instructed to recite the alphabet, DuBose allegedly said, "I'm from Alabama, and they have a different alphabet." The line was instantly added to Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck" routine.

I'd have let him off the hook, just for the Alabama comment...



And yes, it is real....Couple of days old, actually.

Wells would have gone out and thrown a no-hitter.

How drunk do you have to be that you can't recite the alphabet?

What's funny is that he was actually born in Florida according to Yahoo.

Maybe he grew up in Alabama. :-?

Not THAT much. And, hell, I make the stuff.
