Spiezio's strange night detailed in police report

Elizabethe Holland of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports on the details of the night of December 30, 2007, when Scott Spiezio fell off the wagon in a very big way.

According to the court documents, this is what authorities believe happened:

Spiezio and his wife, Jennifer Spiezio, went to dinner Dec. 30 at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Irvine. There, the player allegedly had six Grey Goose vodkas with cranberry juice while his wife drank champagne. After dinner, they went to Ten, a restaurant in Newport Beach, where together they ordered more vodka, food and an energy drink.

Spiezio left Ten alone in the couple's silver 2004 BMW 745 LI. A short time later, witnesses told police they saw the car speeding, cutting across lanes and crossing into oncoming traffic before driving over a curb and crashing into a fence at Campus Drive and Carlson Avenue.

Later a friend took Spiezio back to his home, but Spiezio allegedly then threw a punch at him. Spiezio and his agent did not mention the incident to the Cardinals front office in a February 17 meeting.

So, how did his wife get home?

I guess that since the police aren't charging her, they don't care.

Who threw the punch at whom? The way you describe it sounds as if the friend punched Spiezio, which would be less exciting and relevant, not to mention being peculiar.

As Daffy Duck said, "Aha! Pronoun trouble."

The best part of the story is Spezio hiding in the closet, holding the door closed from the inside, so the cops won't find him.
