SPEIER ARRESTED FOR DRUNK DRIVING
We all make mistakes. Drunk driving is not a mistake. It’s especially stupid on a motorcycle.
Cubs third base coach arrested for DUI
CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago Cubs third base coach Chris Speier was
arrested for drunken driving early Wednesday after he ran a stop
sign on a city street, police said.
Speier, 56, was pulled over on his motorcycle around 1:40 a.m.
on North Dearborn Street and charged with driving under the
influence and failure to stop at a stop sign, officer Laura Kubiak
Speier was released early Wednesday and has a traffic court date
of Aug. 10, Kubiak said.
Speier played 19 major league seasons, including two years with
the Cubs, and was a three-time All-Star. He is in his second year
as the team’s third base coach. He was the Arizona Diamondbacks’
third base coach when they won the World Series in 2001.
The Cubs beat the Houston Astros 4-2 on Tuesday night.
