Mets Burgos Sought By Dominican Police For Two Deaths

Police in Santo Domingo are searching for Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos in the hit and run deaths of two women. Burgos was arrested last month at a hotel near Shea Stadium for assault and harrasment in a domestic violence incident with his girlfriend. He’s accused of throwing her to the ground and she had to be treated at a local hospital.

The Mets released a statement regarding the recent charges against Burgos:

“We are extremely disturbed by the reports regarding the player’s potential involvement in the hit-and-run accident that unfortunately killed two women in the Dominican Republic,” the Mets said in a statement. “We take this matter very seriously and have begun an internal investigation to ascertain the facts. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the families of the victims.”

The Mets are a really PR conscious organization and aren’t going to tolerate being dragged through the mud by Burgos. Don’t expect to see him playing for the Mets ever again.

About Dave Doyle

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
