Carlton Fisk DUI...

6:27PM EDT October 23. 2012 - Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk was charged with a DUI on Monday in New Lenox, Ill., after he was unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle.

Police said that an open vodka bottle was found in Fisk's vehicle.

But perhaps the most head-scratching detail of the New Lenox police report is the location of Fisk's F-150.

His vehicle was found in the middle of a corn field, according to New Lenox police.

According to the report, Paramedics were called to the scene and police were able to awaken Fisk, who agreed to go to the hospital. He refused a blood alcohol test, and his car was impounded.

"Around 7:20 (Monday) night, we received a couple of calls about a vehicle in a field," Deputy Chief Bob Pawlisz told "When officers went over there, they found Mr. Fisk unconscious behind the wheel. ...They contacted local paramedics in New Lenox, had him examined, and the officers had reason to believe he was under the influence. He was transported to the local hospital and charged with a lane violation, driving under the influence and illegal transportation of alcohol. An open container of alcohol was found in the vehicle."

The 64-year old Fisk posted bond and was released after he was issued a citation. He is scheduled to appear in the Will County Courthouse on Nov. 29.

Fisk's arrest comes one day after the 37th anniversary of his home run that clinched Game 6 for the Boston Red Sox against the Cincinnati Reds, who went on to win the 1975 World Series. Fisk was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000.
