Hall of Fame Catcher Carlton Fish arrested for DUI
The Associated Press reports that Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) after he was found by New Lenox police on Tuesday night asleep in a cornfield in his pickup truck. He was taken to the local area hospital for treatment and released from police custody when he posted bail. He will have to appear in court on November 29, 2012. He will be charged with drunk driving, illegal transportation of alcohol and lane use violations.
Carlton Fisk is best known for his baseball career with the Red Sox, which lasted for eleven seasons, and his time with the Chicago White Sox, which lasted thirteen seasons. His most exciting career moment came when he belted a 12th-inning home run that won Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.
Hiring a drunk driving lawyer
Drunk driving lawyers can help you if you have been arrested for drunk driving. They can also help you if you have been arrested for drunk driving but you were not actually driving the car, just like Carlton Fisk. Consider that most states only require the state to prove that you have actual control of the physical control of the vehicle. Do not try to fight the drunk driving charge on your own. Even for a first time DUI you may be facing severe drunk driving charges.
