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.

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."

Is he called Coco Crisp because of the moles on his face look like the cereal?

The REAL story here, is there are too many people in our great country that have relegated (definition: consigned to an inferior position, place, or condition) themselves to living a life invested only in their wants, wishes, and momentary joy. When people start accepting reality, instead of trying to avoid it by using drugs and alcohol, maybe we can get back on track to thinking about, planning for, and executing the steps necessary to making this country great again. Laws won't change drug use, but the majority of Americans don't want to be surrounded by non-thinking, self-absorbed nitwits. My suggestion is start with a mandatory $5,000.00 fine and one year's probation for possession of any illegal substance or paraphernalia. A healthy public shunning of drug users is what's needed, as well. What are YOU prepared to do, to help me move our country in the right direction again?

This is what happens when you take a punk thug and make him an athletic hero. I remember when good morals and discipline were prerequisites to belonging to a team. It's a micro shot of America, we are losing the very thing that set us apart.

Athletes who drive drunk are hardly surprising news. But what's preposterous is that these people, who earn millions of dollars, cannot even afford a driver or at least a cab just to avoid getting arrested for DUI. It's just lucky Coco Crisp did not cause an accident with his erratic driving.
