Former Giants slugger Barry Bonds celebrated the team’s first World Series win in over half a century by breaking the law.
Bonds was pulled over in West Hollywood, Calif., at approximately 10 p.m. PT for talking on his cell phone while driving, reports TMZ.
The violation will cost him about $125.
The slugger released a statement Monday night, but not in regards to his run-in with the law. Instead, Bonds offered some kind words for his former club.
“There is no city that deserves this championship more and I congratulate Bill Neukom, the entire ownership group, [manager Bruce] Bochy and most of all the guys on the team that fought hard to bring the trophy home to the city of San Francisco. I grew up watching my dad and godfather as Giants, lived out my dream playing in the same uniform in front of the best fans in the world and I just witnessed the Giants winning the World Series. I am ecstatic for the team, the city and all the fans — you truly deserve it.”
