As Deadspin noted , Kevin Keitzman , a reporter for Kansas City sports radio station WHB, tweeted out more details about the incident, including that the police were called after Duffy reportedly fell asleep while in the drive-through at a Burger King.
The Royals had been finished a series in Cleveland on Sunday, but Duffy was not with the team, having been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sore left elbow.
Danny was not part of the team traveling back from Cleveland on Sunday because he had returned to Kansas City a day earlier to undergo an MRI examination.
Duffy has been one of the Royals most reliable starters over the course of the season, sporting a 3.78 ERA and leading the team in strikeouts.
The Royals host the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night, and will look to break their abysmal streak and get a crucial win in the AL Wild Card race.
