Giants’ Cameron Maybin arrested on DUI charge

Giants outfielder Cameron Maybin was arrested on a DUI charge in Scottsdale early Friday morning, according to the Scottsdale Police Department.

Maybin had a blood-alcohol level of .142, almost twice the legal limit of .08, and failed multiple field-sobriety tests, according to the police report obtained by The Chronicle….

“Maybin stated that he was in Arizona for spring training with the Giants and that he was sorry for this,” the arresting officer said, according to the report. “Maybin went on to say that he was going to meet his agent at the Scottsdale Villas.”

The report said Maybin was polite and cooperative throughout the investigation.

Penalties For A 1st Offense DUI In Arizona

According to Arizona drunk driving laws, if anyone is found to be in control of a motor vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Level of 0.08% or more, they may be found guilty of DUI (Driving Under the Influence). A person may also be charged with DUI if they are impaired and under the influence of any amount of alcohol or impaired drugs. These include both legal prescription medications and over the counter medications.

A first offense for driving under the influence with a BAC 0.08% or more is classified as a Class 1 misdemeanor. A first time offender in Arizona is subject to the following penalties:

Minimum of 24 hour sentence in jail up to a maximum of 6 months (the minimum sentence is 10 days in jail, where 9 days of the jail sentence may be suspended)
A $250 base fine, which can go up to $2,500 in total fines and fees
Driver’s license suspension of anywhere between 90 to 360 days
Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
Possible probation for 3 years
Possible community service hours
Some cases may require a complete drug/alcohol assessment and possibly attend an alcohol education class
These penalties are classified as either Administrative Penalties or Criminal Penalties. Here’s what you need to know about each of these penalties:

Drivers arrested for a first offense DUI face an administrative license suspension of 90 days. The impending suspension has to be disputed as an integral part of any DUI defense.
Although installation of an Ignition Interlock Device may not be required, the driver may install it under a hardship based agreement in order to regain their driver’s license.
Drivers arrested for DUI in Arizona are required to undergo mandatory alcohol and substance abuse screening. The driver may also be required to undergo ongoing alcohol or substance abuse counseling or in-patient treatment as mandated by the court or as part of a DUI defense effort.
The Lookback Period is 7 years for prior DUIs, which means that a conviction remains on record for a period of seven years in terms of influencing future or subsequent DUI criminal cases.
The fines, fees, and surcharges amount to around $1,600. However, the offender is likely to incur additional expenses for completing sentencing.

Everything is so close in Scottsdale there's no reason to not use an Uber/Lyft.

But NRIs are already living in tent camps and eating expired bologna sandwiches.
