Cardinal Arrested

HOUSTON () -- St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Donavan Osborne was jailed briefly Monday after he was wrestled to the ground and handcuffed for refusing to leave a Houston nightclub when it closed, a police official said.


Osborne was charged with public intoxication and criminal trespass when he refused an order from three off-duty officers working as security guards to leave Roxy's nightclub, a popular singles bar.


The arresting officers said Osborne had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and had a dishevelled appearance.


Dotson said the officers had to wrestle Osborne to the ground to put the handcuffs on him, "but there were no licks thrown."
