NYDailyNews Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was cited for driving under the influence in Kansas on Sunday. Duffy was pulled over at about 8 p.m. Sunday night in Overland Park, where he was picked up by an acquaintance after cops issued him a ticket, city spokesperson Sean Reilly told the Daily News on Tuesday. TMZ has reported that the 28-year-old starter was stopped in his Cadillac Escalade at a Burger King, though Reilly did not confirm the exact location. “We are obviously disappointed in the news we have received regarding Danny Duffy’s DUI arrest on Sunday night,” Royals GM Dayton Moore said Tuesday in a statement. “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 under the influence, but this is now a legal matter and we will allow the process to unfold and cannot comment any further.” Duffy, whose team lost 12-0 to the Indians in Cleveland Sunday afternoon, needed an MRI after he was put on the 10-day disabled list with an elbow injury. The lefty declined comment to reporters at the Royals’ Kauffman Stadium on Monday, per The Kansas-City Star. He is scheduled to appear in municipal court on Sept. 19.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy is on the disabled list, so apparently he decided to enjoy a a few drinks, and then decided it was time for some fast food. Duffy drove his Cadillac Escalade to a Kansas City Burger King, where he was pulled over, and cited for DUI. The drunk munchies claim another victim. Danny Duffy makes $5,000,000 this year, so the next time he gets the drunk munchies, we suggest that he call an Uber to get to Burger King instead of risking his life and the lives of others by getting behind the wheel.
