Friday, December 28, 2007

Ex-Yankee and Radio Host Jim Leyritz has reportedly been arrested this morning at 4:30am for Driving Drunk and striking another car. The woman in the other car was ejected and has passed away from her injuries. Via TMZ...

TMZ has confirmed that Jim Leyritz, a member of the New York Yankees championship teams in the 1990s, is being held at Broward County Jail in Florida, after being arrested for allegedly driving under the influence and causing the death of a woman driving the other car in a collision.

Local10.com of WPLG-TV reports that, according to police, Leyritz was driving a Ford SUV that crashed into another vehicle in downtown Fort Lauderdale early this morning; the other car rolled, and the female driver was ejected and later died.
I don't really have much to add here. Just a terrible thing and hopefully justice will be served.

I always found it funny that Mike Vick got buried by the media/court system for dog fighting, but nobody seems to care that Leonard Little got a slap on the wrist for killing a woman with a car.

Hopefully the judge throws the book at Leyritz.

yep, he was named. it's one thing to get popped for dui (which is never cool), but to go and get in a crash and then have someone die as a result, this is not going to end well for leyritz.
