That marriage ... (sips imaginary glass of bourbon) ... it's a tough racket. Just two weeks after getting married, Marlins pitcher (and awfully likable fellow) Dontrelle Willis has already discovered something about the institution: It'll drive you to drink. At 4 a.m. this morning in South Beach, Willis was arrested on a DUI charge.
Police approached Willis, 24, about 4 a.m. after he stepped out of his black Bentley and urinated on the street. He was arrested the nightclub Mansion, said Bobby Hernandez, a department spokesman. Willis failed a field sobriety test, police said. He later refused a Breathalyzer test.
It's a shame for Dontrelle, who has consistently shown himself to be charitable, accessible and one of those baseball guys it's difficult to dislike. His image surely will take a hit in the wake of the arrest, but hey, it's Christmas: We're sure the nightclub Mansion just had a special on nog.
