Jim Leyritz, former major league baseball player, was arrested Friday morning after being involved in an accident in which his vehicle struck another, killing the driver of the other vehicle. He was allegedly under the influence of alcohol at the time, and has also been charged with DUI property damage. Leyritz has been released on bond from Broward County jail.
During his eleven year career, Leyritz played for the Yankees, Angels, Red Sox, Padres, and Dodgers. He is most famous for hitting a game-tying, three-run home run in the eighth inning of game 4 of the 1996 World Series against the Atlanta Braves, in which the Yankees went on to win the game in extra innings.
