This guy obviously has a pretty bad alcohol issue by the looks of his car's interiors, stacked with empty bottles of alcohol.

Drinking scotch in front of a police officer after being pulled over is pretty bold. But if you’re an All-Star first baseman, you might feel like you can get away with it.
Unfortunately for Miguel Cabrera that wasn’t the case. The Detroit Tiger was arrested for a DUI late Wednesday night. The slugger has battled drinking problems in the past. Last spring training he even claimed he was done with drinking.
But after the initial shock of the incident passed, his teammates and fans are waiting to hear what happens next. Will Cabrera be suspended, released, asked to check into rehab?
USA Today says Major League Baseball doesn’t have to do anything.
“Unlike the NFL, Major League Baseball doesn't have a personal conduct policy. The Tigers could choose to suspend Cabrera or have him seek counseling.”
Analysts say Cabrera is too talented to be released, but general manager Dave Dombrowski understands the team might need to show him some tough love.
“You do that for anybody you know. If it was an employee, a friend, whatever it may be when somebody runs into this and I’ve run into many, many situations in life with people that have had a problem, and you try to do what you can to help them. But I mean it’s also tough help sometimes too I mean. But yes, you try and support them and try to help them and we will do that. We will do that.”
ESPN’s John Kruk says rehab is the best answer to solving Cabrera’s drinking problems and time shouldn’t be an issue.
“He needs to be in there for as long as it takes for him to get better. And if the Detroit Tigers rush it back and say we need for you play and get on the field, now we’re in trouble because he needs to take as long as he can, Mike, to get himself straightened out. And it’s not about baseball. It’s not about the Detroit Tigers. It’s about him and his life. This could kill him.”
Finally, The Detroit News offers Cabrera a role model on his road to recovery: the player that beat him out for AL MVP last season.
“One relapse certainly can be overcome. Just ask Josh Hamilton, who’s had a well-publicized long and dangerous battle with drugs and booze… One thing that, no doubt, has helped Hamilton through the hard times -- helped Hamilton get better -- is his openness and honesty about his disease.”

Since alcohol and teeth hate each other, You are allowed to love both of them, In this video Dr. Vadivel explains how alcohol affects your teeth.
Hi. I’m Dr. Kumar Vadivel, a licensed periodontist. I want to talk to you about the impact of alcohol on your teeth. If you are watching this video, then I know that you are likely asking the question, Is alcohol bad for your teeth?
Well, the answer to that depends on two things: how much alcohol you drink and how well you take care of your teeth. If you drink moderately and take good care of your pearly whites, they are apt to stay in relatively good health.
As a whole, alcohol is not good for your teeth. It is acidic, which is destructive to the enamel on your teeth. If you combine your drink with soda, this makes it even more acidic, and the sugar will promote the growth of the bacteria that produces even more acid.
Alcohol will also help to dehydrate your mouth, which reduces the amount of saliva you have. The right amount of saliva is necessary to control the bad bacteria in your mouth, which helps to keep your tooth’s enamel in good health.
The risk of getting periodontitis is also greatly increased by alcohol because and raises the amount of sugar in your mouth.
The other danger that I must mention is the increased risk of oral cancer. Alcohol reduces the protective lining of the mouth and throat. This means if you smoke, it enables more carcinogens to pass into your body, tripling the possibility of getting a variety of head and neck cancers.
You can protect your teeth and keep your smile looking great by minimizing your alcohol intake. If you already have teeth damage, come and visit my office for a consultation to restore your smile.
