Another spring, another booze-related Cardinals train wreck?

From the Associated Press:

An arrest warrant has been issued by the Irvine Police Department for St. Louis Cardinals utilityman Scott Spiezio on six charges stemming from a crash in late December.


The warrant alleges driving under influence, driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more, hit and run, aggravated assault, assault and battery.

According to the story, after the hard-rocking Redbird, who underwent treatment for substance abuse last summer, crashed his 2004 BMW and ran from the scene, a neighbor reportedly told police that "Spiezio had arrived home appearing disheveled and apparently injured. Spiezio vomited in his condo and then allegedly assaulted the neighbor, causing significant injuries."
