Closer Urbina arrested for firing gun out of SUV

Free-agent closer Ugueth Urbina has been arrested for firing gunshots into the air in an upscale Caracas neighborhood.

Police arrested Urbina early Friday morning for firing a gun out the passenger window of an SUV, Chacao police chief Leonardo Diaz Paruta said in comments published Saturday in El Nacional. Urbina and a friend, Cesar Diaz, were intoxicated when they were detained. Police seized a revolver from them. They were charged with possession of a weapon without a license and misuse of a firearm.

It was not clear whether they still were in custody.
