SCOTTSDALE, AZ - The Oakland Athletics released a statement Wednesday regarding the arrest of outfielder Coco Crisp.

The A's said Crisp was arrested and detained early Wednesday morning on suspicion of DUI, but was released from a Scottsdale jail in time for the team's pre-game drills.

"The A's are aware of the situation and take such matters seriously," the team said in the statement. "The team and Coco will have no further comment until further details are available."

The 31-year-old switch-hitter played in 75 games for the A's last season, batting .279 with eight homers, 38 RBI and a career-high 32 stolen bases.
