Brewers All-Star pitcher Yovani Gallardo was arrested on Tuesday morning for driving under the influence, according to a report from ESPN Wisconsin:

Gallardo, a 27-year-old right-hander, was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near S. 76th St. when he was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. for driving slowly and deviating lanes. McLaughlin said Gallardo failed a field sobriety test and later registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, nearly three times the legal limit in Wisconsin (.08).

Gallardo will receive a $300 citation for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, another $300 fine because the level of intoxication was so high, and $178.80 for lane deviation.
