Leyritz Again

As you may recall, former Yankee Jim Leyritz was arrested for vehicular homicide in December of 2007. He ran a red light, hit another vehicle, and killed the driver.

He was out on bail, awaiting the trial, but was back in the slammer last week.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Former major leaguer Jim Leyritz was arrested and jailed after a judge revoked his bond for violating his pretrial release on a DUI manslaughter charge, authorities said.

Authorities say a system in Leyritz's car that he has to blow in before starting it, and periodically while driving, recorded that he consumed alcohol four times since the device was installed in April 2008. He is not allowed to drink alcohol under the terms of his release.

Good gravy. He drank while driving four times before his bail was revoked? When he's not supposed to be drinking at all?

And he was soon back out, on a technicality.

He claimed he didn't know he wasn't allowed to drink. That's about as believable as A-Rod's press conference. Surely his lawyer must have explained it to him. What did he think the Breathalyzer on his car was there for, decoration?

How can he even think of drinking and driving after he killed someone while driving drunk?

Because he's an alcholic.
