Jayson Werth pleads guilty to DUI

From the Washington Post:

Former Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth pled guilty last week to driving under the influence in the Scottsdale area. The arrest occurred in April, when Werth was playing at the Mariners’ spring training facility in nearby Peoria. The court sentenced Werth to a diversion program, ordered drug and alcohol screening, charged him more than $1,600 in fines and fees, and suspended his driver’s license.

At the time of his arrest, police reported Werth for three violations: Driving Under the Influence of liquor, drugs, or vapors (a charge applied to someone driving “while under the influence of intoxicating liquor, any drug, a vapor releasing substance containing a toxic substance or any combination of liquor, drugs or vapor releasing substances if the person is impaired to the slightest degree”), DUI with a blood alcohol content of .08 or more, and driving without current registration. The second two charges were dropped as part of Werth’s plea agreement.
