Boston Red Sox catching prospect Jon Denney was arrested for the second time in three months, but this one takes the cake by far.
According to a police report obtained by Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, Denney was pulled over just before midnight Wednesday night after cops observed his truck fishtailing. Denney gave the police a license that restricted him to driving for business and emergencies because of a previous DUI.
When asked why he was in the Fort Meyers Beach area, Denney gave police the moneyshot.
“Partying and looking to get some pussy.”
But the story doesn’t end there!
Denney called a friend to pick him up, but police saw him drive out of a parking lot two hours later. He supposedly was belligerent and began to cuss after being pulled over, and then went on one of those infamous “don’t you know who I am?” rants.
Passan, citing the police report, says Denney told the cops “he was a Boston Red Sox player and he didn’t care [sic] he had money and made more money than we would ever see.” When handcuffed, the report said, Denney said “he would be out in no time because of who he played for and that he made three million a year.”
Denney was booked and released on Thursday.
