Jim Leyritz

Former Major Leaguer Jim Leyritz was arrested in December 2007 on a felony DUI manslaughter charge in connection with an accident that left a second motorist dead. Leyritz was driving a Ford SUV that slammed into another vehicle on a Ft. Lauderdale street. The early morning crash caused the second car to roll over, and the driver, Fredia Ann Veitch, was ejected from her Mitsubishi Montero and died later at an area hospital. Veitch, a 30-year-old mother of two children, was returning home from her job at a Ft. Lauderdale steakhouse. According to cops, Leyritz failed several roadside sobriety tests and smelled of booze, had red, watery eyes, and a flushed face. Leyritz, who played for the New York Yankees during much of his 11-year career, was booked into the Broward County lockup (where the above mug shot was taken) in lieu of $11,000 bond. In addition to the felony charge, Leyritz was also hit with a lesser misdemeanor drunk driving charge.
