Irvine, California. Saint Louis Cardinals’ ball player Scott Spiezio had one hell of a night on December 30th. Spiezio allegedly downed six Grey Goose vodka cranberry drinks at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Spiezio needed more to drink, so he ordered more vodka at Ten in Newport Beach.
Consuming that much vodka is not good for your driving skills. Spiezio soon learned that valuable lesson as he careened across various lanes of travel into oncoming traffic. Luckily, his BMW jumped a curb and he slammed into a fence which resulted in no injuries. Speizio, known in the baseball world for his rocket speed, bolted from the scene.
A witness identified Spiezio running away, and police also found Spiezio’s iPhone and wallet inside the smashed up Beemer. Good one Scotty. However, Spiezio is no where to be found. Scott ran to a friend’s condo and this genius helped clean Scott up and called his wife.
Punch drunk Spiezio started to vomit all over the condo, and his friend was not happy about the mess. When asked why Scott could not vomit in the toilet, Scott provided an outstanding answer. Spiezio cried out, “You know I can kick your ass,” and that is exactly what Scott did. He pummeled his buddy’s eye shut and then dashed off into his wife’s car.
When police arrived at Spiezio’s home his wife put up a good effort by saying Scott was sleeping with pneumonia. That charade did not last long, and she allowed police to enter the home. Scott was found in a closet hiding. Police were able to get Scott Spiezio to come out of the closet to be arrested.
Scott has been charged with six crimes: Driving Under the Influence, Driving Under the Influence with a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 percent or more, hit and run, aggravated assault, assault, and battery.
The Saint Louis Cardinals have severed ties with Scott buying out his contract. I wonder what the former Anaheim Angels, Oakland Athletic and Seattle Mariner will do now? He is not providing any insight, but his voice message says, “Things are a little crazy right now.” Understatement of the century.
