SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, who cried while apologizing last year for taking a banned substance that led to a 50-game suspension, was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence of marijuana, the California Highway Patrol said Friday.

Cabrera was arrested early Wednesday after the CHP dispatch center was notified of a possible DUI driver by the U.S. Border Patrol at a checkpoint in Dulzura, some 25 miles southeast of downtown San Diego. The CHP said Cabrera was determined to be under the influence of marijuana.

After being taken to the CHP El Cajon Area Office, he was not showing signs of still being under the influence of marijuana and was cited and released to the custody of his mother-in-law, the CHP said.

"Mr. Cabrera was cooperative with the CHP Officers. Charges against Mr. Cabrera for DUI will be requested,'' a press release said.

Cabrera is on the disabled list for the second time this season with a hamstring injury. He did not make the trip to Colorado for this weekend's series but is expected to join the club for a series at the Los Angeles Dodgers starting Monday, when he is to be re-evaluated. Cabrera was hitting .232 with three homers, 20 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.

His agent, Scott Boras, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cabrera was suspended for the final 50 games of the 2013 season for his relationship with the Biogenesis of America scandal. Cabrera, who was San Diego's only All-Star in 2013, was leading the NL with 37 stolen bases when his suspension began.

During a news conference on Aug. 5, 2013, he struggled to control his emotions after admitting he took a banned substance.

"My situation I have right now ... I'm very sorry with all my fans in San Diego with this situation,'' he said. "I'm very sorry with my organization. I'm very sorry with all my teammates, and I'm very sorry about this situation I have right now. It's a tough situation for me. It's a tough situation for the organization, and I'm making all my responsibility is just me.''

The suspension cost Cabrera $348,361 of his $1,275,000 salary.

He's making $2.45 million this year.

The Padres said in a statement that they were aware of Cabrera's arrest and were in touch with MLB.

Another NFL player in legal trouble.

from sportsnet.ca:



Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer head-butted his wife and broke her nose after she refused his sexual advances, and punched her in the face the next day, police said Thursday.

The details surfaced in a law enforcement report a day after Dwyer was arrested on aggravated assault charges and deactivated from all team activities after he was taken into custody at the Cardinals’ practice facility and headquarters in Tempe. He spent a night in jail and made a brief court appearance before being released on bail early Thursday.

The arrest came at a time when the NFL and its commissioner are under fire over a series of violent off-the-field encounters involving some of the league’s marquee players, including Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy.

The NFL has said the Dwyer case will be reviewed under the league’s personal-conduct policy.

Dwyer was arrested Wednesday for investigation in two altercations that occurred on July 21 and 22 at his Phoenix residence, just days before the Cardinals reported to training camp. His wife left the state after the incidents, but came forward a week ago after Dwyer apparently sent suicidal text messages including a photo of a knife.

In the first encounter, police say Dwyer attempted to kiss and undress his wife, but she refused. Someone who heard the argument reported the assault to police, who showed up at the apartment but did not make an arrest. Dwyer hid in a bathroom and the wife said she hadn’t been assaulted and denied he was in the home because the running back threatened to kill himself in front of her and their child if she told police about the assault, police said.

The next day, Dwyer punched his wife with a closed fist on the left side of her face, according to police. He also punched walls and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who was not injured, police said.

As his wife tried to call police, Dwyer grabbed her cellphone and threw it down from the home’s second story. Witnesses told police that Dwyer’s wife said, "I’m calling the police" as she held her swollen face and clutched her son.

During his police interview on Wednesday, Dwyer acknowledged hiding in the bathroom when police responded to the first argument and sending a photo of a knife with suicidal threats. Dwyer denied committing an assault, though he acknowledged that he punched walls in his home, threw a phone and that his wife bit his lip during the disputes, according to the police report. As he was released from jail Thursday, he said he never hurt his son.

During Dwyer’s initial court appearance Wednesday night, defence attorney Jared Allen asked that Dwyer be allowed to leave the state for his job, but a court commissioner denied that request after prosecutor Jay Rademacher said the Cardinals had deactivated Dwyer.

The NFL has been jolted by domestic violence issues since a video surfaced that showed former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, New Jersey, elevator.

Then Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on felony child-abuse charges for using a tree branch, or "switch," to discipline his 4-year-old son.

On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers decided that star defensive end Greg Hardy won’t play any more games for the team until his domestic violence case is resolved. Hardy was convicted of assault on a female and communicating threats after the victim said the 6-foot-4, 275-pound player threw her in the bathtub and onto a sofa covered with guns before threatening to kill her. Hardy is appealing the ruling.

The Dwyer arrest adds to the pressure on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, whose handling of the Rice case has been widely criticized.

Rice was originally suspended for two games, then banned indefinitely after the video surfaced of his attack in the casino elevator.

This is the second domestic violence case involving a Cardinals player. Inside linebacker Daryl Washington pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend and is serving a year of supervised probation. Washington hasn’t been penalized by the NFL for the offence but is suspended for this season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Dwyer was booked on counts that include aggravated assault causing a fracture and involving a minor, criminal damage, and preventing the use of a phone in an emergency.

Dwyer signed with the Cardinals this year and was their second-string running back after spending the last four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He scored a touchdown last week in Arizona’s victory over the New York Giants.

His best year for Pittsburgh was 2012 when injuries depleted the team’s backfield in the middle of the season. Dwyer filled in and had 100-yard-plus games in consecutive weeks.

Dwyer, from Marietta, Georgia, was a sixth-round draft pick of the Steelers out of Georgia Tech in 2010.

BALTIMORE (WJZ/CBS NEWS)—The Baltimore bullet has been arrested for driving under the influence in Baltimore City early Tuesday morning.

Michael Phelps was arrested around 1:40 a.m. in the Fort McHenry Tunnel on I-95 by Maryland Transit Authority police.

MDTA released the following statement:

“A Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police Officer was operating stationary radar on southbound I-395 leaving Baltimore City when a White 2014 Land Rover entered the radar’s area of influence at excessive speed (84 mph in a 45 mph zone). The officer followed the vehicle onto northbound I-95, through the tunnel and initiated an enforcement stop just beyond the tunnel’s toll plaza. Mr. Phelps was identified as the driver by his driver’s license and appeared to be under the influence. He was unable to perform satisfactorily a series of standard field sobriety tests. Mr. Phelps was cooperative throughout the process.”

Phelps was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speed and crossing double lane lines within the Fort McHenry Tunnel on I-95 in Baltimore. He was later released.

This makes Phelps’ second DUI arrest.In 2004, the Olympic gold medalist swimmer was stopped near Salisbury University after running a stop sign. He was charged with  DUI, DWI, violation of a license restriction and failure to obey a stop sign.  After striking a deal, Phelps was sentenced to 18 months probation after pleading guilty to drunken driving.

“I recognize the seriousness of this mistake,” Phelps said in 2004 before a judge and courtroom of more than 100 spectators. “I’ve learned from this mistake and will continue learning from this mistake for the rest of my life.”

In 2004, the judge also ordered Phelps to attend a victim impact panel meeting sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He was fined $250 and ordered to pay $55 in court costs.

Teammate Ryan Lochte commented on Phelps’ arrest, telling TMZ that he should have hired a driver.

“He has so much money to get a driver. I even have a driver. Just stinks for the sport of swimming,” Lochte said to TMZ.

It’s been an interesting month for Baltimore athletes as the Ravens faced national criticism for how they handled former player Ray Rice’s domestic dispute with his then fiance, Janay Rice in an Atlantic City casino. After the video of Rice’s dispute was made public, also by TMZ, the NFL indefinitely suspended him.

Orioles slugger Chris Davis also made headlines recently as he was suspended for 25 games for testing positive for Adderall, a prescribed drug that contains amphetamine.

Pretty scary stuff when Ryan Lochte becomes the voice of reason.

2 more NFL players arrested over the last 24 hours. Looks like NFL now stands for National Felons League.


from tmz.com:



Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Tom Johnson was TASED by cops at a Minneapolis nightclub ... BECAUSE PEPPER SPRAY DIDN'T STOP HIM ... this according a police report obtained by TMZ Sports. 

Johnson was arrested early Sunday morning at Seven Steakhouse Sushi Ultralounge Skybar -- where he was allegedly causing trouble around 3AM. 

According to the police report, Johnson was told to leave the building -- but refused ... so cops decided to break out the pepper spray. 

But Johnson -- 6'3", 288 lbs -- wasn't fazed ... so cops broke out the stun gun.

He was eventually taken into custody and booked for disorderly conduct and trespassing.

Johnson posted $78 bail -- and was released later that day. He's due back in court on Oct. 17.

Johnson's agent has told the media he was confident the Viking's player would be exonerated.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



from tsn.ca:




Miami Dolphins reserve defensive lineman Derrick Shelby was suspended indefinitely after police used a Taser on him three times while arresting him on misdemeanour charges of resisting arrest and trespassing at a nightclub.

Shelby was suspended hours before Monday's practice for conduct detrimental to the team. Coach Joe Philbin said he talked with Shelby, and said the Dolphins will gather more information before making a final determination on disciplinary action.

According to a Fort Lauderdale police report, nightclub security said Shelby was touching women without their permission early Saturday. Shelby appeared intoxicated, was ordered to leave several times by an officer and refused, the report said.

When officers tried to place the 6-foot-2, 282-pound Shelby in custody, he pushed away and took an aggressive fighting stance. He was placed on the ground and continued to resist, and officers used a Taser before he was subdued.

A mug shot showed Shelby with a swollen lower lip and a bruise on his cheek. He was released from jail on a $100 bond and entered a plea of not guilty.

"We're still gathering information," Philbin said after practice Monday. "I feel like from the information I have at the present time, I took the appropriate action and suspended him indefinitely."

Shelby's agent, David Canter, released a statement saying he was disappointed by the Dolphins' decision to suspend to his client.

Defensive end Jared Odrick, a friend of Shelby's, said he was surprised to learn of the arrest.

"I thought it was like The Onion news reporting it, thinking it was fake, because he's such a smart guy," Odrick said. "He loves his job and working hard and setting a standard with the team. So it was shocking."

Odrick said he took no issue with the suspension. But Odrick said he, Shelby and other black players face special challenges regarding their conduct in public.

"The thing we're reminded of as professional athletes and black men is we're targets more than anybody else walking down the street," Odrick said. "We're targeted sometimes, and we have to understand we have to uphold standards and society's rules more than a regular passer-by. We have to set the example."

Shelby, a third-year veteran, has played in all four games as a reserve this season. The Dolphins had a bye last weekend, and players were off Thursday through Sunday. Miami plays Green Bay on Sunday.

Dallas Cowboys reserve running back Joseph Randle was arrested for shoplifting from a suburban mall Monday night.

Randle was charged with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500, according to Frisco, Texas, police. He was released on writ bond at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Frisco Police Lt. Jason Jenkins said Randle is accused of attempting to steal underwear and cologne from the Dillard's in Stonebriar Centre Mall.

Randle rushed for a season-high 52 yards on five carries in Sunday's win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Another fucking rocket scientist.   Would have been cheaper to pay for the underwear or not wear shit stained ones on your way to the bar to get drunk and then arrested for drunk and disorderly or wherever you were going.


So if he kicked the shit out of the underwear he stole would he have been cut?

Football players are football players because they are too fucking stupid to be anything else.  This moron will be making several appearances here before police shoot him dead for knocking over a hot dog vendor with a weapon.

The NHL announced Monday that Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov has been suspended indefinitely after an early morning arrest on domestic violence charges.

Here's the official statement in full from the NHL:


Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov has been suspended indefinitely from all club activities pending a formal investigation by the National Hockey League of an arrest this morning on charges of domestic violence.

The suspension was imposed under Section 18-A.5 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which provides that, during the pendency of a criminal investigation, “The League may suspend the Player pending the League's formal review and disposition of the matter where the failure to suspend the Player during this period would create a substantial risk of material harm to the legitimate interests and/or reputation of the League.”

Voynov, who will continue to be paid during the pendency of the investigation, was arrested for California Penal Code section 273.5, Domestic Violence.

There are very few details at this time about what happened leading up to Voynov's arrest. Voynov is indeed innocent until proven guilty, but the NHL isn't going to let him play until more is learned about the allegations.

Given the climate of professional sports leagues and how they deal with domestic violence issues, the NHL wasted no time. The league apparently knew about the arrest before just about anyone else as the NHL's announcement preceded any reports of Voynov's arrest.

How quickly the league reacted to these allegations offers quite the contrast to how the NHL handled domestic violence allegations against Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov, who was arrested around this time last year. Varlamov barely missed any time and the charges were eventually dropped.

The heat the NFL took over the early stages of its own season regarding the incident involving Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens has certainly put other leagues on notice.

The NHL is doing the right thing by not waiting for the league process to sort itself out this time. The collective bargaining agreement section that covers "off-ice conduct" will continue to allow Voynov to be paid, though. He will also still count against the Kings salary cap, leaving them with almost no flexibility to replace him.

UPDATE: According to Lisa Dillman of the LA Times, the Redondo Beach Police Department is handling the Voynov investigation. Voynov is due in court Wednesday.

Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register filled in a few more details:

According to information on the Los Angeles Sheriff Department's website, Voynov was arrested at 12:45 a.m. Monday by Redondo Beach police. The initial arrest report does not specify the charges Voynov might face, but does say he faces felony charges.

The Redondo Beach P.D. is expected to issue a statement regarding Voynov's arrest later Monday afternoon.

You better call John Elway. :)


from denverpost.com:




As an allegedly highly intoxicated and uncooperative John Boyett was handcuffed in the back of a patrol car Monday evening, police were unable to read him his rights because the Broncos practice squad safety kept repeatedly telling the arresting officer to "contact his boss, John Elway."

Elway is not Boyett's boss, anymore. After the Broncos read details of the Greenwood Village Police Department's report on Boyett's arrest, Elway, the team's general manager, announced Thursday afternoon the safety had been released.

In summary, according to the police report, Boyett was highly intoxicated, threatened a bartender at a sports bar where he ate, drank and did shots, was belligerent to his fellow patrons, assaulted a cab driver, stole a shovel from a construction site so he could whack the cab driver, fled the scene and tried to hide from police by trying to bury himself under mulch.

And then as he was handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol vehicle, Boyett, 24, repeatedly yelled at an officer to contact his boss "John Elway."

The testimony on the Greenwood Village police report included stunningly similarities to Boyett's arrest 13 months earlier in Indianapolis. Boyett had apparently made the Indianapolis Colts' season-opening roster as a sixth-round rookie last season when on Sept. 2, 2013 he was arrested on charges of disorderly public intoxication and resisting arrest after an altercation with police.

Law enforcement was called in response to an incident involving Boyett at a downtown Indianapolis bar. The Colts waived Boyett the day after his arrest. He was signed to the Broncos' practice squad on Nov. 19 of last year.

The incident Monday began at The Sports Book Bar & Grill on Arapahoe Road. Boyett showed up around 5 p.m., had food and beers, left for a message. He returned around 8:30 p.m. for more food and beer, only this time he added a "couple of shots."

Boyett tried to buy shots for patrons but when they refused he chastised them by calling them a derogatory name. He tried to take food off one woman's plate.

Police were called and say when they arrived Boyett was visibly intoxicated. The bartender had been trying to get Boyett to merely pay his tab and leave but Boyett instead told the bartender he was "gonna get popped in the face."

Police told Boyett he would not be arrested; they just wanted him to leave peacefully. Police helped escort Boyett into the cab, but five minutes later, a call was radioed in that a cab driver had been assaulted by a male who matched Boyett's description.

The cab driver said that while driving, Boyett pulled him backward by his shoulders and punched him with a closed fist behind his right ear. Boyett got out of the cab and started running. He stopped to pick up a shovel at a construction site and returned to whack the cab driver, then took off and tried to conceal himself beneath landscaping mulch when police found him and apprehended him.

Boyett remained uncooperative during the booking process, refusing to provide contact or address information. He was held in a holding cell and booked on three chargers: third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, harassment and theft under $2,000 (the shovel).

Another day and another NFL player arrested.


from usatoday.com




Tennessee Titans running back Shonn Greene was arrested on Friday night on a handful of charges, the most serious a resisting stop charge stemming from him leaving the scene of an incident in Franklin, Tenn.

Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk.

The incident began when Greene parked in a handicap parking space on the square in Franklin, located roughly 20 miles south of Nashville. When a parking enforcement officer approached Greene, police say he got in his car and maneuvered to get around the parking enforcement officer's vehicle.

According to police, Greene nearly struck the officer's vehicle, and sped off from the area. Greene was later approached when he got caught up in traffic, but sped off again, police say.

Though an investigation, Franklin police determined Greene was the individual involved in the incident. Police got in touch with the Titans and arranged for Greene to turn himself in on Friday night around 9 p.m. He posted a $2,000 bond and was released at 10:38 p.m.

Sergeant Charles Warner of the Franklin Police Department said the entire incident could have been avoided.

"The entire situation could have been avoided if he would have left that handicap space for who is was intended for,'' Warner said. "The fact that he didn't and got caught being parked there, he could have stopped things from going any further than a parking ticket if he would have simply communicated with the parking enforcement officer and not taken such evasive measures to get away from her, increasing the seriousness of what would have been a simple parking ticket."

The parking enforcement officer is a civilian, not a sworn police officer, "but certain laws apply to her and her authority," Warner said.

Greene turned himself in after being informed there were warrants for his arrest, Warner said.

The Titans could not immediately be reached for comment.

Greene has played in five games this season, rushing for 190 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries. He's missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, but returned to practice this week. On Friday, the Titans listed him as probable for Sunday's game against the Texans on the team's official Injury Report.

The Titans signed Greene to a three-year, $10 million contract prior to last season. He played in 11 games last season and rushed for 295 yards and four touchdowns.

A felony count of corporal injury to spouse with a great bodily injury allegation has been filed against Los Angeles Kings defenceman Slava Voynov.

The case was confirmed on Thursday afternoon by a Los Angeles District Attorney spokesperson.

Voynov, 24, was arrested in Redondo Beach, California on October 19 and charged with domestic assault. He has been suspended by the NHL since.

Since the charge is a felony, Voynov faces up to four years in prison and could face an additional five more if the victim sustained "great bodily injury."

According to a release from the DA's office, Voynov's wife suffered injuries to her neck, eyebrow and cheek and required medical attention.

Following news of the charges, Voynov's attorney, Craig Renetzky, released a statement.

"Mr. Voynov is extremely disappointed that the district attorney's office elected to file charges," read the statement. "Mr. Voynov maintains his innocence and looks forward to clearing his name in court. We remain confident."

The Kings released a statement saying that they maintain their support of the NHL's indefinite suspension of Voynov and that the organization will continue to monitor the legal proceedings.

Minnesota G Daquein McNeil arrested for 2 counts of Domestic Assault.


from cbssports.com:


Minnesota sophomore Daquein McNeil was arrested Monday.


Minnesota, which is playing two of the next three nights in New York City, has indefinitely suspended guard Daquein McNeil. The Golden Gophers sophomore has reportedly been arrested for two counts of domestic assault.

As a result, McNeil is not with the team in Manhattan. He's sitting in jail, in Minnesota.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune first reported the story, citing a Minneapolis Police report.

The arrest came Monday afternoon, shortly after the alleged incident took place.

University of Minnesota athletics director Norwood Teague put out a statement shortly after the Star-Tribune's story went live. Here's that statement:

"Men's basketball student-athlete Daquein McNeil has been suspended from all team activities pending an investigation into a possible domestic assault. We are currently gathering information and cooperating with the authorities. This athletics department values respect and positively impacting the lives of others and will not tolerate any form of domestic assault from its staff or student-athletes."

The details of the allegations are not pretty, as is normally the case in these situations.

The Hennepin County attorney's office has until noon Wednesday to decide whether to file formal charges against the 20-year-old McNeil. The criminal report details two counts of domestic assault against McNeil, including felony second-degree assault, against his girlfriend, 28, at an apartment near campus. 

The report reads that McNeil “ripped her clothes off, hit her with a large belt multiple times, choked her and poured cold water on her. The victim [was] able to flee [the] unit with only a small robe and coat. … Officers observed victim to have multiple bruising and welts all over her body.” 

McNeil was apprehended by campus police and booked by Minneapolis police.


Minnesota plays St. John's Wednesday evening at Madison Square Garden in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off. Gophers coach Richard Pitino has not spoken on the matter yet.

McNeil had been a role player, putting in nearly 19 minutes and averaging 3.3 points and 3.3 rebounds so far this season. The sophomore was a transfer player who went to Minnesota when Pitino took the job in 2013. Originally, McNeil committed to playing for Pitino when he was coaching Florida International.

Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was found guilty of reckless driving Friday and sentenced to 10 days in jail, according to Julie Carey of NBC Washington.

Lawyers for the Nationals ballplayer said he will appeal the judge's conviction and sentence, which includes a 170-day license suspension. Carey reports Werth is expected to spend five days in jail if the decision is upheld.

Werth was arrested and charged with reckless driving in July after police pulled him over for going 105 mph in a 55-mph zone in Fairfax County.

The 35-year-old Werth was reportedly speeding down the George Washington Memorial Parkway in his Porsche 911 at the time of the arrest on July 6.

Werth is entering the fifth season of a seven-year, $126 million contract signed with the Nationals in 2010.

Cabrera was arrested early Wednesday after the CHP dispatch center was notified of a possible DUI driver by the U.S. Border Patrol at a checkpoint in Dulzura, some 25 miles southeast of downtown San Diego. The CHP said Cabrera was determined to be under the influence of marijuana.

After being taken to the CHP El Cajon Area Office, he was not showing signs of still being under the influence of marijuana and was cited and released to the custody of his mother-in-law, the CHP said.

"Mr. Cabrera was cooperative with the CHP Officers. Charges against Mr. Cabrera for DUI will be requested,'' a press release said.

Cabrera is on the disabled list for the second time this season with a hamstring injury. He did not make the trip to Colorado for this weekend's series but is expected to join the club for a series at the Los Angeles Dodgers starting Monday, when he is to be re-evaluated. Cabrera was hitting .232 with three homers, 20 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.

His agent, Scott Boras, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cabrera was suspended for the final 50 games of the 2013 season for his relationship with the Biogenesis of America scandal. Cabrera, who was San Diego's only All-Star in 2013, was leading the NL with 37 stolen bases when his suspension began.

During a news conference on Aug. 5, 2013, he struggled to control his emotions after admitting he took a banned substance.

"My situation I have right now ... I'm very sorry with all my fans in San Diego with this situation,'' he said. "I'm very sorry with my organization. I'm very sorry with all my teammates, and I'm very sorry about this situation I have right now. It's a tough situation for me. It's a tough situation for the organization, and I'm making all my responsibility is just me.''

The suspension cost Cabrera $348,361 of his $1,275,000 salary.

He's making $2.45 million this year.

The Padres said in a statement that they were aware of Cabrera's arrest and were in touch with MLB.


 

Everth Cabrera pled not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest Thursday, according to a spokesperson for the San Diego County District Attorney.

The former San Diego Padres shortstop entered the plea by fax and requested a counter arraignment in lieu of the formal proceeding scheduled for Monday, U-T San Diego reports.

Cabrera, 28, is also facing charges for suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana and possession of the drug in a vehicle. He faces up to one year in jail, if convicted, and has a readiness hearing scheduled for Jan. 14 next year.

The Padres non-tendered Cabrera on Tuesday, making the 2013 All-Star a free agent. Despite a disappointing 2014 campaign, Cabrera's expected to garner interest from several clubs given the weak market for middle infielders. Padres general manager A.J. Preller confirmed the team will not be among Cabrera's potential suitors.
