Did Mets Pitcher Ambiorix Burgos Kill Two People In Hit and Run?

Ambriorix Burgos... Hit and Run Killer?

Ambriorix Burgos... Hit and Run Killer?

Things are looking pretty bad for Ambiorix Burgos, a New York Mets pitcher who has spent this entire season off the mound due to an elbow injury.

Nagua Police in the Dominican Republic says that Burgos struck and killed two women in his 2009 Hummer on September 30th before leaving the scene of the crime.  Police, who used eyewitness testimonals who identified that Burgos was behind the wheel, say that he would be brought to justice and that wrongful death charges could be possible.

A Representative for the Mets made this official statement:

“We are extremely disturbed by the reports regarding the player’s potential involvement in the hit-and-run accident that unfortunately killed two women. 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.”

This would make the third run in with the law for Burgos in just under a month.  Earlier this week Burgos was charged with gun possession when police found him with a rifle, a handgun and a pistol.  And on September 8th, Burgos was arrested for allegedly manhandling his girlfiend in a New York hotel.  He is scheduled in court for these charges on October 23rd.

Thanks Burgos.  Way to be a role model for the kids.
