Marcell Ozuna attempted to go all out on police during his DUI arrest on Friday morning.
Ozuna was pulled over by Norcross Police after being pulled over for speeding and failing to maintain his lane. Ozuna admitted to drinking 3 or 4 beers before driving. He was arrested and jailed in Gwinnett County Jail in Georgia for impaired driving after refusing a breathalyzer test.
Police video of Ozuna’s arrest and subsequent arrest has been released. In the video, Ozuna repeatedly mentions that he plays for the Braves.

“I’m Ozuna from the Braves,” you could hear them say.
The 31-year-old outfielder was trying to be friendly. He pulled out his MLB player ID in addition to his driver’s license, possibly in an effort to gain leniency for fame.
Ozuna said he was celebrating the Braves win. Atlanta beat the Mets Thursday night to win three of four in their series.
The Braves released a statement later Friday. Ozuna also spoke to reporters Friday at the ballpark after being released from jail on bail.
Ozuna is batting .214 this season and has been benched for five straight games due to poor play.
