The ST. PETERSBURG TIMES wipes up news that Dukes was able to reduce his current probation by completing some community service - namely, cleaning up cages at the local Tampa zoo.
Elijah, who’s currently on the Nats’ DL list with a hamstring injury, spent 25 hours this past week “cleaning out cages and mopping at Lowry Park Zoo.”
Dukes had been sentenced to a one-year probation last fall for misdemeanor marijuana possession. But after his adventures with monkey droppings & penguin poop, a Hillsborough County judge decided to stop the supervision.
It’s so perfect that a player who’s created so much crap in the past year would have to spend his time shoveling it.
