Tampa Bay Rays Pitcher Arrested for DUI Hit And Run

M.B., a minor league pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays is being held in custody on a $1.015 million bail, making it the highest bail ever given for this type of offense in Charlotte County. He was arrested on suspicion of a DUI hit and run that resulted in serious injury. On March 22, he was driving a borrowed SUV when he ran into the back of the victim's motorcycle. Under law, any driver involved in an accident is required to remain at the scene so that they can exchange contact information or seek medical attention if necessary. M.B., however, is accused of leaving the 72-year-old T.T. lying in the street.

T.T. was airlifted to the hospital where he was treated for broken bones in his back, ribs, and wrist. He also suffered from brain hemorrhaging and was put into a medically-induced coma for a week to attempt to let him heal. His family has stated that is it difficult to watch him not be able to walk when he used to run marathons. However, M.B.'s attorney is stating that the bail that was set is ridiculously high. In another DUI case, the suspect received a $65,000 bail. However, the victim in that situation actually died, yet he received a lower bail than M.B. did.

If you have been accused of any type of DUI offense, you need to have a strong lawyer on your side throughout the entire process. Even if you are completely innocent of all charges, you still need someone standing up for your rights and ensuring that you receive justice.
