MLB Legend Carlton Fisk

Arrested for DUI

... In a Corn Field

Carlton Fisk mug shot
MLB Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk was arrested for DUI last night in Illinois -- after allegedly driving his truck into the middle of a freakin' corn field ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

According to law enforcement sources, the New Lenox PD received a call about a car in the middle of a corn field around 7:20 PM.

When police arrived, officers say they found Fisk behind the wheel of his F-150 -- which had a flat tire -- and he appeared to be fast asleep. We're told cops also found an open vodka bottle in the vehicle.

Fisk was placed under arrest on the scene on suspicion of DUI -- and taken to a nearby hospital for a check-up. We're told he refused a blood alcohol test. His car was impounded.

Fisk was released this morning.

FYI -- Fisk's arrest comes almost exactly 37 years to the day when he hit the 12th inning home run that won Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. (You've seen the clip ... Fisk waved at the ball to stay fair).

Same old Pudge that I have been around for years. Always had a grudge, moody, hated the media...a miserable person. Even many in the baseball world dislike him. Not a good person to be around.

Even more alarming were the trio of sheep laying back and enjoying a cigarette break.

Oh well, he's still my favorite catcher of all time. Thurman Munson was a good guy too.

We live in the same town as his daughter about 3 hours from Chicago. She thinks she is hot sh**. Maybe this will make her eat crow a little.
