Derek Lowe Pulled Over For Racing Porsche Panamera Before DUI Arrest, According To Report

Derek Lowe was stopped by Georgia State Patrol law enforcement for racing another car on Peachtree Road in Buckhead, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Mike Morris. No word on who he was racing his Porsche against, but we'll hope it wasn't John Rocker. As was hypothesized last week while discussing a photo of Chipper Jones deer hunting, most evidence suggests that all Braves players eventually just turn into one shade or another of Rocker. Welcome, D-Lowe.

Lowe was reportedly driving a 2011 Panamera, the same model as the one A.J. Green now drives. We know he wasn't racing Green, who was a little busy and in New York Thursday night. The unidentified competition was charged with reckless driving, but not redneckless driving, am I right!

This story just went from plain-old disappointing and concerning and so forth to pretty thrilling.
