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.

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

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
