NY Yankees Prospect Arrested for DUI in Tampa

Just last week, a 21 year old baseball player was pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. Mason Williams currently plays baseball in Tampa for the Class A Team and is a future Yankees outfield prospect. Police officers state that this young man was weaving in and out of traffic around 1 a.m. when they pulled him over. The officers conducted field sobriety tests on the scene and the driver failed all of them; however, his blood alcohol tests came back and the two readings showed .062 and .067, both of which are under the legal limit from drunk driving in the state of Florida.

The reason the court may still charge the driver with a DUI is due to the fact that Williams failed his field tests, leaving the police officers to assume that he was still unfit to drive the car safety. If Williams is found guilty by the court, it could result in him having to spend up to 12 months of probation time, 6 months in the Hillsborough county jail, as well as up to a year of driver's license suspicion. On top of that, Williams would also be required to complete 50 hours of community service, participate in DUI School and subsequent counseling as well as any other financial penalties that may be associated with the crime.

Situations like this are not unheard of, as drivers are arrested for a DUI even when their BAC levels are lower that the legal cut off. Whether you have been arrested for a DUI and you failed the field sobriety tests, or your BAC levels were well over the legal limit, contact Thomas & Paulk for the DUI defense attorney you deserve.
