Cardinals player's blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit, police say

St. Louis – Authorities in Maryland Heights say Cardinals third baseman David Freese had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit when he was pulled over early Saturday.

A police report released Tuesday says the player's blood alcohol level was .232. The legal limit in Missouri is .08. Freese was stopped on Page Avenue after officers say they saw his vehicle swerving.

Freese allegedly told officers he had seven beers Friday night. Police say the player was cooperative during the arrest.
