EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Emeralds manager, Jesus Feliciano, is facing DUII charges after his arrest early on Saturday morning, according to the Lane County Jail.

The arrest happened before game one of the Emeralds appearance in the NWL World Series Championship.

"Mr. Feliciano is considering all legal options available to clear his name after being wrongfully arrested," said Lissa Casy of Arnold Law. "He blew a 0.0 on the intoxilyzer and looks forward to more forensic evidence that will exonerate him. He intends to prove his innocence in court if charges are filed."

The Emeralds are currently in Vancouver, playing in game three.
