Police in Santo Domingo are searching for Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos in the hit and run deaths of two women. Burgos was arrested last month at a hotel near Shea Stadium for assault and harrasment in a domestic violence incident with his girlfriend. He’s accused of throwing her to the ground and she had to be treated at a local hospital.
The Mets released a statement regarding the recent charges against Burgos:
“We are extremely disturbed by the reports regarding the player’s potential involvement in the hit-and-run accident that unfortunately killed two women in the Dominican Republic,” the Mets said in a statement. “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.”
The Mets are a really PR conscious organization and aren’t going to tolerate being dragged through the mud by Burgos. Don’t expect to see him playing for the Mets ever again.

He should have been on the list of things to throw into 2008 garbage disposal already, before this occurred, this should certify it!
