Red Sox’s Drake Britton Arrested in Ft. Myers for DUI

Joseph Coupal - Saturday, March 30, 2013
At 4:42 a.m. March 2, on Ben Hill Griffin Parkway in Estero, Drake Britton of the Boston Red Sox led Florida police on a chase that ended in his arrest for charges of reckless driving, driving under the influence and property damage. Britton was driving at 111 mph jumped a curb, crashed into a fence and when he finally stopped his car, he handed police his debit card instead of his license. This 23-year-old pitcher is in his first big league camp this year. The team had intended to start him on Sunday; he has now been optioned out to Portland Double-A. The “Baseball DUI Problem” was also an issue during spring training last year when Bobbie Jenks was arrested for DUI. The Red Sox team manger, John Farrell said this is an issue that the team takes very seriously.  He reports that prevention of these events is part of the ongoing education of every player on the team.  Read the full story on ESPN here. Britton is lucky; no one was hurt by this incident except his perhaps his young baseball career. If you are arrested for Driving while under the influence, contact Brooks & Crowley.
