Padres' Peavy Arrested After Double Parking. Seriously.

From "Peavy arrested after run-in with police at airport" (AP/

MOBILE, Ala. -- San Diego Padres pitcher Jake Peavy was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct Thursday at Mobile Regional Airport....

Padres general manager Kevin Towers told The Associated Press he was told that Peavy was headed for a goodwill tour of the Dominican Republic with other major league players when he double-parked to drop off his bags and was told by airport police to move his car.

"The airport polce told him he couldn't park his car there and he said, 'Write me up a ticket and I'll pay for it,' " Towers said. "He was arrested."

Now at least the Dodgers aren't the only NL West team with a player with an arrest record.
