Must be the 'stache: Cleveland Indians pitcher Scott Sauerbeck was arrested early Tuesday morning after he and a female companion (not his wife) walked away from a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible into a backyard, hopped a fence and hid in some bushes.

Was the '66 model the one with the suicide doors? I loved the early to mid 60's caddies, too, and the Oh excuse, me the Sauerbeck deal is what we're s'posed to be talkin about? Sorry, Scott, I was tryin' to run interference for ya....

He must have been really drunk to think that abandoning his car and hiding in bushes was a good idea.

You have to assume he was even more drunk than the lady he let drive in his place, who clocked in at a nice .253, according to the article.

I don't know whether to be turned on or scared by a woman who could turn in a breathlyzer result of .253.

Scotty is lucky to be with us. He is our only lefty reliever and hes not very good, besides that he must have been well out of his mind thinking he could get away from the Akron police and better yet he was talking to the woman while they were "hiding." What funny is he pitched later that night in a 4-3 win over Chicago.

Jeez, that chick blew a .253 and (WILD ASSUMPTION WARNING) a left-handed relief pitcher in the same night? You go, girl.

If convicted, the maximum penalty for the misdemeanor offenses is six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Nothing compared to the Kobe-esqe bling he will have to get for momma to avoid alimony.

She blew him, his wife blew her chance to marry a decent guy, and he just blew half his money! DUMBASS STAY IN A PRIVATE HOTEL AND OUT OF THE PUBLIC BUSHES! Although, he may not be able to afford a hotel room after his wife, her lawyer , and his lawyer lay a beating on his assets. Do you think that the arresting officer is an Indian's fan?

mjkredliner: Was the '66 model the one with the suicide doors? You are correct!

what a fool. I hope he doesn't have any kids.

His wife and her lawyer will look nice tooling around in that sweet ride.

Scottie is VERY lucky to associate himself with someone who hit .253... MOST of the people he deals with hit him MUCH better than that!

Maybe we need to have a debate as to how smart baseball players are.

i read the article. Did i miss something? I don't recall reading anything about a blowing by her to him. you guys always assume the worse! lol. what is it with sports figures and stupid decisions? sheesh!

besides that he must have been well out of his mind thinking he could get away from the Akron police It was in Avon Lake. A much worse place for this to have happened than Akron. He made a bad judgement to let her drive, and a worse one when that her wasn't his wife. The DUI probably would have been cheaper!

"In trying to do the right thing I made a terrible error in judgment, ..." I have got to remember this little gem for the next time I get caught hiding in the bushes.
