Mason Williams charged with DUI

Tweet [1]

According to the Tampa Police Department, Yankees center field prospect Mason Williams was arrested early this morning [2]and charged with DUI. I just got home and saw the report on the Tampa police website. Erik Boland reports that Williams had a blood-alcohol level of .067/.062, [3] which is under the Florida threshold of .08.

UPDATE: Obviously no reason to doubt Erik — or the others reporting the same thing — but I just saw the full arrest report, and it was in fact a .067/.062 BAC. Williams was released on a cash bond. He was arrested at 3:08 a.m. and booked at 4:30 a.m.
