Celebration in order in Cleveland as Indians "pour it on"

Cleveland Indians are red-hot, on fire and taking the American League by storm.

Cause to celebrate?

Maybe. Star slugger Shin-Soo Choo was arrested for DUI yesterday so someone is partying.

Drunk Driving Police in Sheffield Lake, Ohio, claim Choo failed a field sobriety test and allegedly registered a blood-alcohol level of .201, more than 2 1/2 times the legal limit in Ohio.

"We are aware of the incident with Shin-Soo Choo and have spoken to him about it. The Indians organization takes these issues very seriously and we are disappointed," general manager Chris Antonetti said.

But we're kickin' butt and trying to win a pennant he could add.

AL Central-leading Indians' Choo bats .250 with 4 homers, 15 RBIs and a .322 OBT.

Outfielder Austin Kearns was also popped for DUI a few months ago.
