Update, 5/1/2011: Lowe will make his regular scheduled start today against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Update: So allegedly Lowe, who was so motivated by The Fast & The Furious series, was racing another driver down Peachtree Road when he was pulled over by cops. Here is his mug shot courtesy of the Atlanta Department of Corrections:

Original Post, 4/29/2011: Atlanta Braves RHP Derek Lowe was arrested late Thursday night for driving under the influence, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Lowe was stopped around 10 p.m. on Peachtree Road at Rumson Road.

I just don’t understand how a guy who is making $15 million this year, and was probably getting free drinks all night, can’t call a car service, which will most likely be free of charge as well, to get home.

Lowe is scheduled to start Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals.
