Leyritz arrested for alleged vehicular homicide

Holy crap:

Former major league baseball player Jim Leyritz has been arrested in Broward County, Fla. on suspicion of drunken driving and vehicular homicide, WPLG-TV in Miami reported Friday. The station reported that according to Fort Lauderdale police, a car driven by Leyritz, who lives in Plantation, Fla., hit another car at Southwest 7th Avenue and Second Street early Friday morning.

According to the report, the passenger in the car that Leyritz allegedly struck was ejected from the car and died at the scene, police said.

Somehow I think that Leyritz won't be getting that coaching job he wanted.

Maybe he can still get a job as an assistant under LaRussa

PageSix is reporting that Leyritz knew Veitch.
