This is a strange, yet funny story.
Carlton Fisk, one of the greatest Catchers to ever play baseball, was arrested for DUI after police found him unconscious in his truck…in a cornfield. Police apparently found an open bottle of vodka inside his (get this) Ford F-150 pickup truck.
Cornfields. Pickup trucks. Sounds like something out of a movie script.
I bet the real story (if we ever become privy to it) is even better.
From Huffington Post…
