Cleveland OF Shin-Soo Choo Arrested on DUI Charge

More details as they become available, but Paul Hoynes of the PD broke the story this afternoon that Cleveland outfielder Shin Soo Choo was arrested early Monday on DUI charges. Choo is with the team in Oakland now, and is in the starting line-up for the night.

He is the second Indians’ player arrested for DUI this year. Austin Kearns is the other and his hearing in Kentucky was actually set for today.

GM Chris Antonetti had this to say, “We are aware of the incident with Shin-Soo Choo and have spoken to him about it. The Indians organization takes these issues very seriously and we are disappointed in the matter. We will continue to monitor the situation and we will not have any further comment at this time.”
