Ex-Royal Brian McRae arrested on DUI suspicion

Former Royals outfielder Brian McRae has been arrested on

suspicion of driving under the influence after a traffic stop on

Interstate 435.

Police in Overland Park tell The Associated Press that the

43-year-old McRae was taken into custody around 3 a.m. Thursday and

released later that morning.

Police don’t know whether McRae has an attorney. McRae’s home

phone has been disconnected.

The Kansas City Star reports McRae has faced two previous DUI

citations. One in 2004 led to a conviction, but an Overland Park

judge cleared him of the second in 2000.

McRae retired in 1999 after playing for the Royals, Chicago

Cubs, New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays and Colorado Rockies. His

father is former Royals great Hal McRae.
