According to the police report, a deputy saw DuBose's truck swerve across the yellow line three times. Upon pulling him over, the deputy noticed that DuBose's speech was slurred, he exhibited poor balance, had watery and blood-shot eyes and an "odor of alcoholic beverage." When instructed to recite the alphabet, DuBose allegedly said, "I'm from Alabama, and they have a different alphabet." The line was instantly added to Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck" routine.

haha dont no about the last part, but yes he was arrested.. todays baltimore sun says it...

1 crazy thing about this is that this may force dubose to got to AA.. the orioles AAA team is in Ottawa.. that is where dubose would probably have gone.. but this arrest may prevent him from getting a work visa.. since Ottawa is in Canada he needs 1...

i find that very interesting

best keeper team ever!
