Shin-Soo Choo Sacked by the LBS Nut Bag for DUI, Blowing .201
We used to be big fans of Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo. Heck, we could have told you he was the most underrated player in baseball before his fellow players gave him that honor in an SI vote. But imagine the irony that the same day SI revealed Choo was named the most underrated player, he does something to make sure everybody knows his name. That’s right, Choo was pinched for suspicion of DUI on Monday in Sheffield Lake after he failed a field sobriety test. I mean just look at that guy, his face totally says “I’m faded bro .. I’m so faded.”
From WKYC and the AP: “According to police, a patrolman first spoke to Choo at 2:25 a.m. He told the officer he was lost and needed directions to Avon Lake. Choo was allowed to continue driving, but was later pulled over when he twice crossed the double-yellow lines and drifted into a bike path. He told the officer his GPS had broken and he was unable to get directions home. Choo’s eyes were bloodshot and he smelled of “an alcoholic beverage,” police said, and he was ordered out of the SUV.”
For an added bonus, you can watch the dash cam video of Choo’s field sobriety test. Watching him trying to toe the line while nearly three times the legal limit is about as humorous as watching Raul Mondesi flail at a curveball off the plate. Check out this drunken mess:
Someone tell Choo that sloppy, drunk, and stupid is no way to get through life. Well, unless you’re hitting .352 of course.
