Seattle Mariners second baseman Adam Kennedy charged with DUI

Ak Seattle Mariners second baseman Adam Kennedy has been charged with two counts of driving under the influence, the Orange County district attorney's office said Wednesday.

On Jan. 26, Kennedy, 35, was stopped about 9 p.m. by the California Highway Patrol while driving north on the 73 tollway, authorities said.

The baseball player was suspected of being under the influence and arrested minutes later. He was then turned over to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and booked at Men’s Central Jail.

Word According to the complaint, Kennedy is charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol and one count of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08% or more. Both charges are misdemeanors. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 21.

Kennedy, who is from Riverside, played for the Angels between 2000 and 2006. He was considered a key player in their 2002 World Series victory. In 2007, he moved to the St. Louis Cardinals, which was followed by stints with the Oakland Athletics in 2009 and the Washington Nationals in 2010.

He signed to the Mariners in January 2011.
