WINDERMERE, Fla. – Former All-Star baseball player Johnny Damon has been arrested in central Florida on a charge of resisting an officer after he was pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Jail records show that the 47-year-old was booked into jail early Friday after an incident in a wealthy suburb of Orlando popular with professional athletes.
He is charged with resisting an officer without violence.
Damon was a key member of the 2004 World Series champion Boston Red Sox team that broke the franchise’s 86-year title drought.
The outfielder later signed with the New York Yankees and helped them win the 2009 World Series.
