Mets bullpen catcher Eric Langill was arrested last night and charged with a DUI after he crashed into a street sign and a concrete fountain near the team’s spring training complex in Florida, flipping his car over.
WPTV-NBC reports that Langill drove his Honda Accord into the center of a traffic circle while turning into an intersection and had to helped out of the upside-down car through the passenger door.
He then tried to leave the scene on foot before onlookers stopped him. Langill later told police that he was coming home from a bowling alley after 2-3 drinks and another car cut him off.
Langill, now 32 years old, was the Expos’ 34th-round pick in 1999 and played seven seasons in the minors, but got into a total of just 210 games and hit .210 with one homer.
