Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Popped for DUI

2/4/2012 10:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Middleweight boxing champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. -- son of the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez -- has been arrested for DUI, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Julio was pulled over in his black Land Rover for a routine traffic stop last weekend on an L.A. freeway -- and when officers approached the vehicle, they detected a strong odor of alcohol.

The officers administered several field sobriety tests -- and we're told Julio's reflexes weren't quit up to par, so they placed him under arrest.

Julio was subsequently booked for DUI. Calls to Julio's people were not returned.

Idiot!
What's the point of a field sobriety test? It takes 5 seconds to blow into a breathalyzer. Seems to just be a tool for the police to humiliate the driver.
