25-year old Orioles pitcher, Troy Patton, was arrested this past Sunday for suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Houston.  Houston Police Department officers pulled Patton over after they noticed him speeding at around 8:15 P.M.

The officer that arrested Patton also claims to have witnessed the baseball player drive over a curb, weave in between lanes of traffic without signalling and almost hit another vehicle.  Reports indicate that Patton took a breathalyzer test after being pulled over and registered a blood alcohol content of .14 percent.

Patton was arrested for being over the .08 legal blood alcohol content in Texas and charged with a first offense, class B misdemeanor DWI.  The DWI charge can result in up to a $2,000 fine and up to six months in prison.  Police released Patton after meeting a $500 bail.
