Oakland A's Coco Crisp -- DUI Arrest at Spring Training

3/2/2011 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Coco Crisp was hauled into jail this morning on suspicion of DUI in Scottsdale, Arizona -- and was cruising in a vehicle that costs more than $400,000 when the arrest went down.

The Oakland A's outfielder -- who's in AZ for Cactus League spring training -- was pulled over by Scottsdale PD while driving his 2009 Rolls Royce Phantom.

The A's tell TMZ, Coco "was arrested and detained early this morning under the suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol." 

Team officials say Coco got out of jail this morning and showed up on time for pregame drills.

The A's didn't mention what, if any, disciplinary action Coco would face.

030211_coco_videoBTW -- A couple weeks ago Coco was in Los Angeles hanging with Charlie Sheen.  It's not what you think though ... just a little batting practice.

UPDATE: Cops say Coco was stopped after officers noticed him "failing to stay in one lane of traffic."

Cops say, "After the stop, the officer observed signs of intoxication on the driver. After Mr. Crisp agreed to, and performed field sobriety tests, he was arrested without further incident."

People like this foolio needs to be behind the wheel of a Yugo or Pinto or something because that way when they do get into an accident for DUI they don't survive the crash. Plain and simple.

Neeeeeever again do I want to hear about nor read about how unequal the dark-skinned (aka "black") people have it in these United States of America. $400,000. Rolls Royce? That sounds more like a *Pimpmobile*

No question there will be action taken....the WORST city in the country to drive drunk in is Scottsdale. Checkpoints all over and recent crackdown on day drinking and driving, you can get a DUI at 10 in the morning as easily as 10 at night in Scottsdale.

More important men and women than him have done 10 days in tent city. My guess is Sheriff Joe will make sure he enjoys his stay. Hope he likes pink!

CrashAndBurn - keepin' it classy I see!

Sorry to see this about Coco... he's a good dude, obviously made a bad decision though. You're better than that my dude and you've got kids that look up to you... clean it up and take care of yourself! Just a little bump in the road... own it and turn it positive if you can!

welcome to scottsdale, coco. the cops there are worse than the SS. but not quite as ethical. i've been pulled over dozens of times, completely sober, after leaving a bartending shift in old town scottsdale. when they have no reason to pull you over they make stuff up: their 'go-to's' are 'failing to stay in one lane of traffic" (apparently lane changes are illegal in az), "failure to turn into the nearest lane" (despite the fact you can make a right turn out of a corner gas station and might need to make a left turn twenty feet later - they expect you to signal left and make two lane changes within the span of twenty feet, i guess), and the infamous "driving in the bike lane." this is their new favorite. when you aren't changing lanes, and you pull into the nearest lane, this is their contingency plan. it's absolutely criminal.
