St. Louis (KAIT) - St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese has been arrested in St. Louis County on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
A spokeswoman for the city of Maryland Heights, Mo., on Monday confirmed the arrest but had no details, including the date. Police say details will be released later Monday.
There was no phone listing for Freese, and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney. Several phone messages left with a Cardinals spokesman and general manager John Mozeliak were not returned.
Freese is 26 and is a St. Louis County native. He is expected to compete for a starting job in 2010.
