After numerous delays, the trial is set to begin on December 1 on the DUI case of Miguel Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers first baseman. Cabrera has been charged with DUI, one misdemeanor count of resisting an officer without violence and has a citation for open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
He was arrested on February 16th when a St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office deputy spotted Cabrera's vehicle off to the side of Okeechobee Road with smoke coming from its hood. The deputy reported that during the stop Cabrera grabbed a bottle of Scotch and started drinking. Witnesses, including two Walmart truck drivers, reported seeing Cabrera drunk prior to his arrest.
