Alcohol never leads to anything good!
Yankees' top minor-league prospect Mason Williams was arrested early this morning for driving under the influence in Tampa, and we're really saddened that an all-star would make such a mistake.
Williams was pulled over at 2:45 a.m. after police saw his Range Rover "weaving in the lane" and going between 50 to 53 mph in a 40 mph zone.
Once the 21-year-old showed "clues of impairment" a DUI traffic stop was conducted, and Mason had to perform a series of field sobriety exercises.
After the athlete failed the tests, cops noticed "additional clues of impairment," and he was arrested.
Williams was then taken to the Central Breath Testing unit, where he took two breathalyzer tests that read 062 and .067, which were both below Florida's legal limit of .08.
Unfortunately for Mason, he was charged with a misdemeanor and was locked in at the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office without incident.
No word on whether Williams will face jail time has been heard, but if he's found guilty, he will be locked up for a bit on a 2nd degree misdemeanor.
The Tampa Yankees, where Mason plays Single-A ball are currently handling this situation, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has not commented on the terrible occurrence.
