SAN DIEGO – A criminal complaint was filed by the San Diego District Attorney’s Office against Padres shortshop Everth Cabrera for allegedly resisting arrest in September.
Cabrera was arrested at a checkpoint on state Route 94 in eastern San Diego County on September 3 at 12:30 a.m. by California Highway Patrol. He was accused of driving under the influence of marijuana, DA’s spokesman Steve Walker confirmed Thursday.
The complaint notes the 27-year-old professional baseball player resisted an officer’s order by force, Walker confirmed. After detaining Cabrera, CHP officers transported him to El Cajon office.
By the time he arrived at the El Cajon office, he was not showing signs of being under the influence and released, according to the complaint.
Cabrera’s misdemeanor arraignment is scheduled for December 8 in East County.
