Cleveland Indians' Shin-Soo Choo Arrested for DUI

Another day, another Major League Baseball player arrested for DUI.

As first reported by Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cleveland Indians’ OF Shin-Soo Choo was arrested for DUI on Monday morning. Choo was stopped on Lake Road (Route 6) at 2:25 a.m. when a police officer saw his car weaving on the road.

Choo becomes the sixth player to be arrested on suspicion of DUI this year. The other winners are Miguel Cabrera, Austin Kearns, Adam Kennedy, Coco Crisp, and Derek Lowe.

Ironically enough, it was announced on Monday that Choo was voted by his peers in a poll as the most underrated player in the game. I guess he was celebrating with a severe hangover.

I will say that it’s the Players Union that needs to step up in these matters. There is no way that these players who are arrested for DUI should be allowed to walk away Scott free.

If Major League Baseball and the Players Union doesn’t want to have the image of the NFL or NBA, then they need to do something about this yesterday.

Naturally Choo is in the lineup tonight against the Oakland A’s.
