The Mets just cannot catch a break.

The latest out of spring training for the Amazin's is that the team's bullpen catcher, Eric Langill, was arrested for driving under the influence Sunday night after a single car-accident in Port St. Lucie.

According to police reports, Langill was driving towards a traffic circle when he attempted to make a hard right turn. The car flipped over the curb and hit a concrete barrier, causing it to flip upside down.

Langill was then reportedly pulled from the car by witnesses, who then stopped the catcher when he attempted to leave the scene of the accident on foot. Langill told police the accident was caused by another car cutting him off, and admitted that he had had two to three drinks earlier that night at a bowling alley.

Langill played seven seasons in the minors from 2000-2006, mostly with Los Angeles Dodgers affiliates, but never made it to the big leagues.
