Former Padres No. 1 pick Matt Bush was arrested for a laundry list of dumb stuff and then cried like a little girl as he was taken into custody two weeks ago. He has since pleaded (pled?) not guilty for drunken driving, resisting arrest and two counts of vandalism. Bush was released by the Blue Jays earlier this year and doesn’t seem to be rebounding with the heart of a champion.
The latest happened after police received a call about 1:40 p.m. June 28 about a man throwing objects at passing cars while standing outside his vehicle on Camino de la Reina near the San Diego Union-Tribune building in Mission Valley. Police said he had hit at least one car with his belt buckle.
After getting into his vehicle, he backed into that same car, causing damage, police said. He was arrested in a parking structure of nearby Fashion Valley Mall, taken to jail and booked on assault with a deadly weapon, resisting arrest, driving on a suspended license, vandalism and driving under the influence.

I would never have expected a guy that pissed away a multi-million-dollar career to carry himself with such little composure. And I can’t really make out what he’s saying as the cops hog-tie him and then carry him into the back of a cruiser. I’ve only seen the authorities do that was homeless people and very large doughnuts. Mmm, doughnuts… [thanks, Kim]
