Los Gatos police arrested San Jose Sharks left wing Ryane Clowe early this morning on suspicion of drunk driving, officials said.
Officers pulled over Clowe at around 2:27 a.m. for a minor traffic violation on Highway 9 near the on-ramp to northbound Highway 17, police Cpl. Dan Accardo said.
Officers believed Clowe, 25, was under the influence. The Shark, who has been out with a knee injury since Oct. 28, agreed to a field sobriety test and failed, Accardo said.
Clowe was booked into Santa Clara County Jail and released sometime this morning.
Add Clowe to the list of NHL players, past and present, that have had similar run-ins.
