Giants outfielder Cameron Maybin was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Friday morning in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the team said it is aware of the situation.

Scottsdale police confirmed the arrest to NBC Sports Bay Area on Tuesday afternoon, and provided a booking photo of Maybin.

According to the police report obtained by NBC Sports Bay Area through public-records request, an officer observed Maybin driving 55 mph in a 35-mph zone while going north on Scottsdale Road at 2:22 a.m. Friday. His 2015 Range Rover veered into another lane, so the officer initiated a traffic stop. The officer asked Maybin if he had consumed any alcohol, and he replied “he had a couple glasses of wine” at dinner, according to the report.

Another officer arrived on scene and spoke to Maybin, who spoke clearly but had bloodshot and watery eyes. Maybin told that officer he’d had five glasses of wine.

That officer then conducted field sobriety tests on Maybin, who didn’t pass them. The officer wrote in the report that after the one-leg stand test, “I asked how big the glasses of wine were. Cameron stated they were pretty big.”

Maybin took a breath test, which showed .142 blood-alcohol content -- above Arizona’s legal limit of .08. Maybin told the officer that he’d “tried to sleep it off” for at least one hour, according to the report, and hoped he was below the legal limit.

 

Maybin was arrested at 2:43 a.m., and his Range Rover was impounded, per the police report. Maybin later consented to a blood test and another breath test. He then registered a .127 BAC at 3:19 a.m. and a .125 BAC at 3:24 a.m. -- still well above the legal limit. Two vials of blood were drawn afterward.

Police said in the report that "Maybin was polite and cooperative throughout the investigation."

Maybin was released from Scottsdale jail at 4:49 a.m., and he didn’t play in the Giants’ spring training game that night. He did appear in all three of the team’s games Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

“We are aware and are monitoring the situation, and we have no further comment at this time,” the Giants said in a statement to NBC Sports Bay Area.

Maybin, 31, is in his first season with the Giants after he signed a minor-league contract with the team in mid-February. He has played 12 years in the major leagues with the Tigers, Marlins, Padres, Braves, Angels, Astros and Mariners, and is expected to be a veteran presence in the Giants’ young outfield. He’s a career .254 hitter with 60 home runs, 315 RBI and 174 stolen bases.
