There are scumbags then there are SCUMBAGS. Former pitcher Curtis Leskanic was found driving in Florida with a .331 blood alcohol level. The kicker is that this jackalope endangering the lives of everyone on the road, he had his daughter in the front seat unsecured. From the Orlando Sentinal:
According to the arrest report:
Police received a call about 7:30 p.m. Monday about a pickup truck “swerving all over the road” with information that the driver’s daughter was in the vehicle.
As an officer drove east on State Road 434 toward Ronald Regan Boulevard, he noticed a truck stopped in the roadway, even through the traffic light at the intersection was green.
It took two attempts to awaken Leskanic, who was “hunched over as if he was sleeping.”
The first time the officer asked Leskanic for his drivers license, the man handed over his scout identification card from Major League Baseball.
Leskanic failed a series of roadside sobriety tests.
Once he was placed under arrest he became agitated and started screaming.
In DUI cases, two blood-alcohol tests are normally performed, but Leskanic refused to take a second test.
In the trip from the jail to South Seminole Hospital and back, Leskanic was swearing and exhibiting hostile behavior.
I really feel for his daughter but Leskanic needs to spend some time behind bars. Call a cab people!!!
