Baseball player Jeffress arrested for a DWI

Jeremy Jeffress, a player for the Texas Rangers, was arrested after being caught driving while intoxicated.

According to police reports, the 28-year-old pitcher was seen driving erratically in the 2500 block of Maple Avenue around 3:00 AM. The officer who pulled him over noticed several signs of alcohol intoxication. Jeffress exhibited bloodshot eyes and strong alcohol odor from his breath. He also lost his balance during a field sobriety test. A breathalyzer test showed that the baseball player had a blood alcohol level of 0.115 percent, and the officers seized a suspected illegal substance from inside his vehicle. Jeffress was discharged from police custody several hours after his arrest, but was placed on a restricted list with the Texas Rangers.
