WHB reporter Kevin Kietzman said police were called after Duffy fell asleep in his car in a Burger King drive-through. The pitcher reportedly tried to get someone to drive his car for him in order to avoid an arrest.

Royals GM Dayton Moore’s statement:

We are obviously disappointed in the news we have received regarding Danny Duffy’s DUI arrest on Sunday night. Danny was not part of the team traveling back from Cleveland on Sunday because he had returned to Kansas City a day earlier to undergo an MRI examination.

We are still in the early stages of gathering the details, but I do know that Danny has always been accountable as a member of this organization and we expect the same accountability from him as this process moves forward. We obviously do not condone anyone driving while under the influence, but this is now a legal matter and we will allow the process to unfold and cannot comment any further.

The day before Duffy’s arrest, the Royals had placed the pitcher on the 10-day disabled list with an elbow injury.
