L.A. Dodgers Star


Allegedly Spits at Cops

12/8/2011 11:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Los Angeles Dodgers
star James Loney was arrested while being hospitalized in L.A. last month ... after allegedly smashing his Maserati into THREE other cars ... and then spitting at a cop ... this according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

Loney -- who plays 1st base for the Dodgers -- was arrested on November 14th ... because cops say he appeared to be under the influence of drugs after he swerved into a Toyota around 6pm ... and then careened into a Mercedes and a Mini.

According to the report, when cops first arrived to the scene ... Loney told one of the officers, "The bitch hit me from behind."

Cops say Loney appeared to be "restless, unsteady, aggressive and irritable" ... and he "exhibited eyelid tremors and his shirt was soiled and moist from perspiration, from his armpits down to his waistline."

Cops say when officers asked Loney what day it was ... he replied, "7/15 and Saturday" -- when in fact, it was 11/14 and Monday.

Loney was handcuffed and transported to a nearby hospital -- where an officer attempted to give him a breathalyzer test.

But according to the report, Loney was "uncooperative" -- biting off the mouthpiece and spitting it back at the cop.

Cops say Loney began to get aggressive with police ... so they placed him in arm and leg restraints ... and a member of hospital staff gave him "an injection" to calm him down.

Loney was released to the care of the hospital and was never brought to the police station for formal booking.

Still, cops say they obtained a blood sample to test for drugs and alcohol ... but it came back NEGATIVE. Now the case is in the hands of the L.A. City Attorney's Office.

Calls to Loney's rep have not been returned.

First of all, all you haters out there with your prejuding selves. I can tell you that those cops were doing their racist thing againn with James. When he called that girl the b word, it was on as far as they were concerned. James does not smoke or drink. If he did, the blood test would have shown it. So, please stop all of your rude and nasty comments about James Loney. The cops were the guilty ones once again and tried to cover it up again. Now, what I want all of you to do is to get on your little computers and send James a nice little apology for being so rude and so wrong.

come on guys... i am very disappointed in all of you. the dude was obviously tripping. you need a special drug test for acid and shrooms and the cop probably thought he was just all cracked out and ordered a normal one, therefore he is going to show clean. whenever one decides to trip, it's all about the current state of mind and environment. be very careful when using these drugs.

So the end result is that James Loney wasn't on drugs, he's just a complete ******* *******! Got it!
