Former Yankee arrested for vehicular homicide


The mugshot is of Jim Leyritz, hero of the 1996 World Series. He was arrested today and charged with killing someone while driving drunk.

Witnesses said he ran a red light with his Ford Expedition, crashing into another vehicle and killing its occupant, a 30-year-old woman. He appeared intoxicated, and refused to take a Breathalyzer test.

Well, I guess he can kiss his dreams of a coaching job with the Yankees goodbye. What a senseless tragedy. He made at least $10 million dollars during his MLB career, and he couldn't afford a cab?

the drunk killed a hard-working, 30 yr. old lady, who was coming home from a second job.

If it was you or me, we'd go to jail. He'll probably go into rehab, plead no contest, and get community service and a fine.

I live down here where it happened. I got a real problem with the way he seemed so indifferent that she died. One of the responding officers informed him that she had died, and it only made him more uncooperative.

He'll always be a WS hero, but he's also a careless drunk, and needs to go to jail.

He also needs to pay to support her kids.
