Kansas City’s sports radio 810 WHB reports that Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol Sunday evening in Overland Park, Kansas. UPDATE: multiple other news outlets have now, after contacting the Overland Park police, confirmed WHB’s report.

WHB reports that, based on Overland Park municipal court records, Duffy was charged with the violation at 7:35pm. The Royals lost at Cleveland 12-0 earlier in the day. Duffy is scheduled for arraignment September 19 at 1:00pm.

Duffy is 8-8 with a 3.78 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 116/36 in 131 innings this year. He is currently on the disabled list with what has been diagnosed with a low-grade pronator strain in his elbow.

UPDATE: The circumstances of his arrest were . . . interesting. Short version: he was arrested after passing out behind the wheel of his car at a Burger King drive-through.
