Padres' Cabrera is charged with resisting arrest

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera has been charged with resisting arrest after being stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.

The San Diego County district attorney's office said Thursday that the 27-year-old shortstop faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail if convicted of the misdemeanor. The office also cited him for possession of marijuana in a car, a vehicle code infraction that carries a fine of $100.

The California Highway Patrol arrested Cabrera on Sept. 3 on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana. Steve Walker, a spokesman for the district attorney's office, says prosecutors do not plan DUI charges.

Cabrera is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 8 on the charges, which were filed Monday.

The spokesman didn't know if Cabrera had an attorney.
