Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera arrested on suspicion of DUI

Friday September 5th, 2014

San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana, according to the Los Angeles Times

The incident occurred shortly after midnight Wednesday in California, when Cabrera was stopped by Border Patrol.

The California Highway Patrol said the shortstop was cited and released into the custody of his mother-in-law.

“We were made aware of an incident involving Everth Cabrera this week, and we take this matter very seriously," the Padres said in a statement.  

The 27-year-old is currently on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. He has played 90 games for the Padres in 2014, hitting .232 with three home runs, 20 RBI and 18 stolen bases. 

Cabrera was one of 13 players suspended by MLB in August 2013 for taking performance enhancing drugs in connection with Biogenesis. He served a 50-game suspension.
