Cabrera allegedly threatened restaurant staff
By QMI Agency
Before his alleged run-in with police last month, the Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera allegedly threatened staff at a restaurant in Ft. Pierce, Fla., including a warning that he would "blow this place up."
Cabrera has apologized for actions that led to his arrest Feb. 16 on charges of driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence.
Restaurant manager Fletcher Nail said Cabrera walked into Cowboys Bar-B-Q and Steak Company after 10 p.m. and was told the restaurant was closed, according to a police report obtained by the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press.
After telling the manager that he didn't know him, Cabrera reportedly said, "I will kill all of you and blow this place up."
Cabrera eventually left the restaurant. The report said the arresting officer came upon a disabled Land Rover (at about 11 p.m.) that was disabled on the side of Okechobee Rd. A male, later identified as Cabrera, came out of the vehicle and shouted obscenities.
After another officer arrived on the scene, Cabrera reportedly was ordered into the back of the vehicle and on to his knees. Cabrera first complied, then stood up, according to the report, identified himself and walked into the middle of the highway with his hands in the air.
"Shoot me. Kill me," he reportedly shouted.
