Eric Langill, Mets Bullpen Catcher, Suspended
The Mets announced they have suspended bullpen catcher Eric Langill for seven days without pay after being charged with a DUI last weekend.
“We met with Eric Langill this morning. He was contrite and very apologetic about Sunday night’s incident,” the team said in a statement. “We informed Eric that he will be suspended without pay for seven days and will be required to seek counseling through the Employee Assistance Program.”

This came after he crashed into a fountain and flipped his car over. The police report says that he was heading home from a bowling alley.

The following was also reported by TC Palm in Florida:
The accident occurred at Reserve Road and Commerce Center Parkway.
According to law enforcement reports, tire marks indicate that the white Honda Accord turned hard to the right as it approached the intersection, causing the car to go over a curb and hit a street sign and concrete fountain at the center of the traffic circle. That caused the car to flip upside down.
A witness, who lives nearby, and a friend were unable to open the driver’s door. But they got Langill, of Canada, out through a passenger door, according to reports.
Langill attempted to leave the scene on foot and was stopped by the witnesses, according to the reports.
A deputy quoted Langill as initially saying the accident occurred because a car cut him off as he was going home from a bowling alley.
Langill, according to the deputy, said he had had two to three drinks. He was taken to the St. Lucie County jail. Langill last played professional baseball in 2006 in the minor leagues. He never played Major League Baseball.
