Celebrity DUIs are unfortunately pretty common but it's not every day in which a corn field plays a major role.
The MLB Hall of Famer was found sleeping behind the wheel of his Ford F-150 pickup (which had a flat tire) with an open bottle of vodka next to him.
That's reasonably standard drunken celeb fare but his truck was parked in the middle of a corn field near New Lenox, Illinois. Paramedics were called to the scene and they were finally able to awaken Fisk, who agreed to go to a local hospital.
Fisk refused to take a blood test and was booked on suspicion of DUI and had his truck impounded.
Here's the official word from Deputy Chief Bob Pawlisz who spoke to ESPNChicago.com:
"Around 7:20 Monday night, we received a couple of calls about a vehicle in a field. When officers went over there, they found Mr. Fisk unconscious behind the wheel. They contacted local paramedics in New Lenox, had him examined, and the officers had reason to believe he was under the influence. He was transported to the local hospital and charged with a lane violation, driving under the influence and illegal transportation of alcohol. An open container of alcohol was found in the vehicle."
The 64 year-old Fisk will have until his court date on November 29 to come up with a reasonable explanation for just how his truck ended up in that corn field with him asleep behind the wheel and an open bottle of vodka next to him.
His arrest came on the 37th anniversary of his greatest moment in Major League Baseball, when he hit the home run that clinched Game 6 in the World Series versus the Reds, with Fisk famously waving at the ball to stay fair as he trotted towards first base.
