Braves Reliever Cristhian Martinez Becomes Latest Pitcher Arrested for DUI

Drinking enough to break the legal limit and then drive is all the rage among Major League Baseball players this spring. Braves reliever Cristhian Martinez is the latest to join in on the action after being arrested early this morning in Gwinnett County on charges of DUI. His blood alcohol registered .10, just narrowly eclipsing the legal limit in Georgia of .08. Martinez has also been charged with “improper lane change” and “impeding the flow of traffic.” He was booked at 4:24 am, which seems to be the popular hour for pitchers to do stupid shit.
