Brewers RHP Yovani Gallardo has been arrested Tuesday morning and cited for drunken driving.

Milwaukee Brewers right-handed starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo was arrested Tuesday morning and cited for drunken driving , according to Drew Olson of ESPN Wisconsin.

Milwaukee County Sherriff's Department spokesman Fran McLaughlin shared the news with ESPN Wisconsin. Gallardo was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near Miller Park when he was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. this morning for driving slowly and deviating lanes. He went on to fail a field sobriety test and later registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, which Olson notes is nearly three times the legal limit in the state of Wisconsin.

Gallardo isn't slated to face jail time but instead citations totaling nearly $800 for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and other violations. It was his first offense for driving drunk, and he has no prior criminal record.

Appearing in three games for the Brewers so far this season, Gallardo had been having a rough start to the 2013 campaign even before he was arrested. He's allowed 13 runs on 26 hits with three walks and nine strikeouts over his first 16 1/3 innings of work.
