Sauerbeck runs and hides from cops

You can’t make this stuff up:

Cleveland Indians pitcher Scott Sauerbeck was arrested early Tuesday after he and a woman fled from his vehicle and were found hiding behind bushes, police said.

Sauerbeck, 34, of nearby Avon, was the passenger in his car, which a patrolman saw weaving. The vehicle pulled into a driveway and the driver, Lily Miller, and Sauerbeck got out, walked into the backyard and jumped a fence, according to a police report.

The owner of the house reported hearing voices outside and police found Sauerbeck and Miller hiding between the home and some bushes.

Miller reportedly blew a 0.253, more than three times the legal limit, and faces DUI and obstructing official business charges. Sauerbeck, meanwhile, was charged with obstructing official business and wrongful entrustment, apparently for allowing someone who was shit-canned drunk to drive his car.

All of which makes you wonder: If letting Miller drive was the best option available, exactly how smashed was Sauerbeck?
