Here Is The Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera In The Back Of A Police Car (Video)
Last month the Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera was arrested on charges of suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and resisting an officer without violence. Cabrera has since been released and is currently taking part in the Tigers’ spring training activities, but new details of the incident have since been uncovered that could once again raise questions about the slugger’s mental stability.
According to a police report released Wednesday, Carbera walked into the Cowboys Bar-B-Q & Steak Co. restaurant in Fort Pierce, Florida at approximately 10:15 pm the night of his arrest. After being told by the manager that the restaurant was closing, Cabrera continued inside before patting a bag on his shoulder and telling the manager, “I will kill you, I know all of you, and I will kill all of you and blow this place up.” Cabrera also told the manager and an agent with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, who was also present at the bar, that he “had a gun in his bag for us.”
Cabrera, who the manager and wildlife agent claim smelled like alcohol and had blood-shot eyes, eventually left and a 9-1-1 call was made by a waitress at the restaurant.
When officers of the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office found Cabrera, he ignored their commands to get off the road. Reports also indicate that he took a swig from a bottle of James Buchanan’s scotch whiskey in front of the officers, and when he was told to drop to his knees, Cabrera said, “f*%king shoot me, kill me.” He has since pleaded not guilty to charges for DUI and two counts of resisting arrest.
Here is footage of Cabrera sitting in the back of the police car. If you listen closely, you can hear the officers discussing the incident just outside the vehicle.
