Former Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress charged with DWI in Dallas

Posted:

DALLAS (AP) -- Former Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress, who was suspended twice as a minor leaguer for violating drug rules, has been arrested in Dallas on a drunken driving charge.

The Brewers traded Jeffress to the Texas Rangers on August 1.

Online records for the Dallas County jail show that the 28-year-old Jeffress was booked around 5:15 a.m. Friday on a driving while intoxicated charge. Bond was set at $500 following the traffic stop. No attorney information was available for Jeffress.

A statement from the Rangers says the team was aware of a situation Friday involving Jeffress and was gathering information.

The Brewers drafted Jeffress as the 16th selection overall in 2006, giving him a more than $1.5 million signing bonus. The right-hander was suspended for 50 games in 2007 and for 100 games in 2009
