NEW LENOX, ILL. (AP) - Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk faces charges of driving under the influence and other misdemeanors after being found asleep in his pickup truck in a cornfield, police in suburban Chicago said Tuesday.
“He was behind the wheel unconscious,” Pawlisz said.
Besides the DUI charge, he faces charges of lane-use violation and illegal transportation of alcohol.
New Lenox is about 35 miles southwest of downtown Chicago.
Fisk became part of an unforgettable baseball moment while playing for the Boston Red Sox when he belted a 12th-inning home run that won Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.
Fisk played 11 seasons with the Red Sox and 13 with the Chicago White Sox.
