Miguel Cabrera Looks Really Happy In His Mugshot While Being Booked For DUI

I've seen a lot of mugshots here at the Speakeasy, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone look quite as happy as the Tigers first baseman.  How shitty must he have been?  Reports are that when the cops rolled up on him, his car was smoking, Miguel was drinking from a bottle of James Buchanan's Scotch Whisky and he pulled the pathetic "Do you know who I am?' line.

Yeah Miguel, cops just love that.  Take a little drinky-poo right in front of them and try to big-time your way through the situation.  This is the same guy that once was busted with a .26 blood alcohol level, got bailed out at 7:30AM and then went 0-4 leaving six runners on base that night against the White Sox.  And oh, by the way, he's slated to make an average of $19 million a year through 2015.  Think the Tigers are feeling good about that investment right now?  Keep smiling, Miguel!

PS - As blended Scotch goes, this stuff ain't bad.  The 18-year old won first place at the 2009 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.  I hope Miguel wasn't drinking the 12-year old - it's just not as good.
