Mets Pitcher Allegedly Killed 2 Women, Turns Himself In
It was a bad year for the Mets, but it's shaping up to be a much worse one for Mets relief pitcher Ambiorix Burgos. He allegedly ran down and killed two women with his Hummer in the Dominican Republic last week, and today Machochip reports that he has turned himself after several days off the grid. They like baseball players in DR, but this looks bad for Burgos: the mother of one of the victims claims he hit her daughter on purpose because "she refused to go out with him." Burgos, who as a Met has done most of his pitching in Triple A, was previously arrested for beating up a stateside girlfriend.
