Brewers All-Star pitcher Yovani Gallardo was arrested on Tuesday morning for driving under the influence, according to a report from ESPN Wisconsin:

Gallardo, a 27-year-old right-hander, was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near S. 76th St. when he was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. for driving slowly and deviating lanes. McLaughlin said Gallardo failed a field sobriety test and later registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, nearly three times the legal limit in Wisconsin (.08).

Gallardo will receive a $300 citation for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, another $300 fine because the level of intoxication was so high, and $178.80 for lane deviation.

Gallardo was the Brewers’ Opening Day starter and is 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA in three games so far this season. The 27-year-old right hander was drafted by the Brewers in the second round of the 2004 amateur draft and has spent his entire career with the team. He was an All-Star and won the Silver Slugger in 2010.
