Dodgers first baseman James Loney won't be charged for an incident in November in which he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he sideswiped several cars on the 101 Freeway, the Los Angeles Times reports.
At the time, Loney pled his innocence, even though a police report suspected he was under the unfluence. Drug tests came back negative and the city attorney's office announced there was insignificant evident.
Loney, 27, hit .288/.339/.416 for the Dodgers last season and will be a free agent after the 2012 season.
For some reason, each report notes that he was driving a Maserati, as if it's a surprise that young guy in Los Angeles who made nearly $5 million last season drives a nice car. I'd be much more interested in the make of the car if it were a Kia or something.
