In March 2019, San Francisco Giants outfielder Cameron Maybin was pulled over around 3am and arrested for drunk driving in Scottsdale, Arizona. According to the arresting officers, Maybin told them he had consumed 5 glasses of wine at dinner earlier in the evening. The outfielder further explained that he had taken a nap to sleep it off and that he was therefore under the impression that he was fine to get back on the road. The legal local limit is .08, Maybin’s judgement was proved wanting and the that of the arresting officers was more than proved sound when Maybin took a breathalyzer test and blew a .127. Clearly proving those Arizona cops did their job and made the Scottsdale area a safer place by getting the MLB player off of the roads.
