DALLAS (AP) — Texas Rangers reliever Jeremy Jeffress, who was suspended twice as a minor leaguer for violating drug rules, has been arrested in Dallas on a drunken driving charge.

Online records for the Dallas County jail show that the 28-year-old Jeffress was booked around 5:15 a.m. Friday on a driving while intoxicated charge. No bond or attorney information was listed. Dallas police didn’t immediately provide details on the arrest.

A statement from the Rangers says the team was aware of a situation early Friday involving Jeffress and was gathering information.

The closer was acquired Aug. 1 from Milwaukee.

The Brewers drafted Jeffress as the 16th selection overall in 2006, giving him a more than $1.5 million signing bonus. The right-hander was suspended for 50 games in 2007 and for 100 games in 2009.
