Former A's All-Star Keough Charged With DUI

By  | 

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Former Oakland Athletics All-Star pitcher Matt Keough has been charged with driving drunk near his Orange County home.

The district attorney's office announced Monday the 54-year-old faces two felony counts.

Authorities claim he had a blood-alcohol level of .30 when he allegedly ran a stop sign, ignored a sheriff's deputy and drove to his home last month.

A phone listing could not be found for Keough and prosecutors did not know whether he had an attorney.

In 2005, Keough pleaded guilty to drunken driving after a crash. Last year, he got 180 days in jail for violating parole terms.

Keough pitched for the Athletics from 1977-83, making the 1978 All-Star team. He later played with the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros.
