Miguel a 27 year old singer-songwriter was arrested for a DUI in California this morning around 2:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time according to ABCnews.com. He was initially pulled over for speeding, how fast he was going was unavailable. During the traffic stop the officer smelled alcohol, this then turned the stop into a Driving under the influence investigation. The website says that he blew a .10 which is higher than the allowable blood alcohol level of .08 in the state of California. It was also reported that he was fully cooperative and was later released from jail on a $5000 bond. Miguel is scheduled to be in court on September 9th to start his legal fight against the charges.
