27 years after an epic home run that would send his Boston Red Sox to a Game Seven against the eventual World Series champion Cincinnati Reds, we're still talking about Carlton Fisk.Well...I guess.According to the Thirty Mile Zone, the Hall of Fame catcher was arrested for DUI Monday night in Illinois after, allegedly, driving his truck into a cornfield.According to law enforcement sources, the New Lenox PD received a call about a car in the middle of a corn field around 7:20 PM.When police arrived, officers say they found Fisk behind the wheel of his F-150 -- which had a flat tire -- and he appeared to be fast asleep. We're told cops also found an open vodka bottle in the vehicle.Fisk was placed under arrest on the scene on suspicion of DUI -- and taken to a nearby hospital for a check-up. We're told he refused a blood alcohol test. His car was impounded. The Hall of Fame catcher was released Tuesday morning.

  • Carlton sure is enjoying his retirement!!!
  • Well that's what he gets for going to the hall as a Red Sox!!
  • Maybe he was hungry and wanted some corn on the cob!!
  • Oh Pudge! Don't worry...We will ALWAYS love you here in Boston! You're not the first, nor will you be the last to make a mistake..BFD! Bad side of internet is instant crap like this, good side is Fenway Faithful can send their love! <3
  • 27 years later? I think he means 37 years after the Reds / Sox series.
  • So he parked in a cornfield, took a nap. The empty liquor bottle really doesn't mean anything. Oh one could imply a great deal but when it comes to the "evidence" in a subjective manner as presented here...they got nutin'.
