Mets’ Bullpen Catcher Charged with DUI Crash
Authorities say New York Mets bullpen catcher Eric Langill has been charged in a drunken driving crash in central Florida.
The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office reports that the 32-year-old Langill was arrested Sunday night after losing control at a traffic circle, crashing into a concrete fountain and flipping his car.
According to an arrest report, Langill smelled heavily of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test. The report didn’t indicate if a blood-alcohol test was performed.
Langill was arrested and charged with DUI with property damage. He was released from jail Monday morning.
The Mets didn’t immediately have a comment.
