Miguel Cabrera's DUI Involves "Do You Know Who I Am" & Drinking Scotch During Arrest [UPDATE]

Miguel Cabrera was arrested for DUI late Wednesday – he’s had problems with alcohol before – and the incident has the potential to become legendary as more facts emerge. According to the Associated Press, Cabrera “took a swig from a bottle of scotch in front of a deputy” before saying, “Do you know who I am, you don’t know anything about my problems.” We eagerly await word on what brand of scotch Cabrera was drinking. Bud Selig, welcome to Spring Training! [UPDATE: Ugly details after the jump.]

From the the TC Palm (via):

A deputy reported Cabrera was put in handcuffs after not following orders. Cabrera also “kept running out in the road with his hands up.”

A deputy asked Cabrera to get his a patrol vehicle, and he said, “(Expletive) you.”

Miguel Cabrera pushed off a vehicle into a deputy, who “delivered 3-4 knee spikes” into Cabrera’s left thigh.

Oh, brother. And the brand of Scotch? James Buchanan. Looks like it’s pretty expensive.

Because you want to see it first!
