Former MLB outfielder Johnny Damon, a two-time World Series champion with the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, was arrested Friday morning in his native Florida. According to CBS Boston, the 47-year-old is facing charges of driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence. Damon was booked shortly after Windermere police pulled over his vehicle at 8:15 this morning. The former leadoff hitter reportedly registered a blood alcohol level greater than .20, which is over twice the state's legal limit (.08).
A two-time All-Star who tallied 2,769 career hits (55th all-time) and 408 steals (68th) over his 18 seasons, Damon last played in the majors with Cleveland in 2012. He’s being held at Orange County Corrections Department in Orlando.
