While the San Francisco Giants are celebrating a sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers, outfielder Nate Scheirholtz has bigger things to worry about. His 23-year-old brother, Cainan, was yesterday arrested after leaving a mile-long trail of carnage in his wake while allegedly driving drunk in a red pickup truck.

The younger Schierholtz allegedly struck a bicyclist, a pedestrian, two other vehicles, and finally came to rest against a pole at around 10 a.m. Sunday in Danville. When he attempted to drive off, he was physically halted by pedestrians. Police say he never stopped to check on the people he hit and was stopped a mile away from the injured bicyclist.

Cainan Schierholtz was charged with four counts of a DUI causing bodily injury; three counts of hit-and-run causing injury; two counts of a hit-and-run causing property damage; and, to top it off, driving without a license.

As of Sunday, he was being held on $350,000 bail.

Schierholtz, like his 26-year-old ballplayer brother, is a local guy from San Ramon who attended San Ramon Valley High.
