Edit: This story is two years old and COPO got me good. I’m going to get him back for this! To be clear, I totally screwed up but I am leaving it up anyway.
Courtesy of COPO (man, you suck) and Deadspin, we have word that Yankees middle infielder Starlin Castro has been arrested in the Dominican Republic in a nightclub shooting that has left six people hurt. This comes three weeks (and 2 years ago) after Castro had been cleared of a previous” involvement in another Dominican nightclub shooting.” I am detecting a pattern here, although to be fair, that’s just how we celebrate.
According to reports, the melee in Montecristi involved his brother, a bodyguard, a bunch of other dudes, and the town’s mayor (?!). Seven people were arrested by police. TWO GODDAMNED YEARS AGO.
Edit: I presume Castro is safely reporting to Tampa for Yankees spring training.
