Johnny Damon hasn’t had his name trending since he played in Major League Baseball, but that changed on Friday after reports stated that he was arrested for driving under the influence, among other charges, per a report by CBS Miami.
Damon, a two-time World Series champion with the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, was arrested and had a blood alcohol level above .20, per police reports, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. He was charged with a DUI and resisting an officer without violence.
More details have since emerged and it shows Damon’s wife was the huge troublemaker in al of this, according to TMZ.
“TMZ Sports has obtained the police report … in which cops say Johnny Damon’s blood-alcohol level was .30, nearly FOUR TIMES the legal limit.
Cops also say Damon’s wife was in the car at the time of the arrest — and describe her as being completely out of control.
In fact, cops say Michelle Mangan-Damon was uncooperative, combative — and at one point, she actually pushed a police officer.”
Michelle was arrested for battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.
“Before Johnny and Michelle were taken to the station, cops say Michelle told the arresting officer she had a nanny at home with their six children. So, the officer called the nanny and told her that Johnny and Michelle “were going to jail and would not be home for some time.”
While at the station, cops say Johnny agreed to take a breathalyzer test, but noted his wife was advising him against it. Ultimately, cops say Johnny gave two valid breath samples, .30 and .294.
Cops asked Johnny where he was partying before the incident … to which they say he replied, “London House,” which Johnny described as “it’s a guy who had a lot of money … we’re just having a good time there.”
Damon is a 2-time World Series champion and made 2 All-Star teams during his 18 seasons as an MLB player.
