Dashcam video, 911 call show night of Gallardo's drunk driving arrest

MILWAUKEE - "He's going to hurt someone."

That's what a 911 caller told dispatchers when they saw who the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department said was Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo driving drunk on the night of April 16th, 2013.

Gallardo was cited for his first offense of OWI after reportedly having a .22 blood-alcohol concentration.

The caller said "he's going all over the lanes" while first driving south on U.S. 41 near Miller Park, then west on I-94 toward Waukesha County.

"I made a bad decision. I made a mistake. I made a mistake and I'm sure I lost a lot of respect from the fans," Gallardo said after the incident.
