James Loney Avoids Criminal Charges After Auto Accident

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman James Loney will not face criminal charges stemming from his auto accident back in November in Los Angeles. Loney, who was arrested after an accident in which he crashed into three cars, will not be charged with a DUI according to TMZ.

The Los Angeles City Attorney's office decided on Wednesday not to pursue the case "due to insufficient evidence to proceed." Loney was arrested on November 14 on suspicion of DUI and cops took a blood sample to test for drugs and alcohol, but toxicology reports came back negative.

Loney, 27, hit .288/.339/.416 with 12 home runs in 2011, and two weeks ago avoided salary arbitration with the Dodgers by signing a one-year contract for $6.375 million for 2012. Loney will be eligible for free agency after the season.
