 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -Former World Series star Jim Leyritz had a suspended license when he was charged with driving under the influence and killing a woman last week.
Leyritz was ticketed outside Albany, N.Y., for using a cell phone while driving June 20, and his Florida license was suspended Nov. 23 for failing to answer the summons, according to motor vehicle records.
``He has a suspension on his record. It's current as of today,'' Ken Brown, spokesman for the New York Department of Motor Vehicles, said Wednesday.
The 44-year-old ex-catcher was charged with DUI manslaughter and DUI property damage, police said. His 2006 Ford Expedition crashed at an intersection Friday, hitting the car of Fredia Ann Veitch. The 30-year-old woman from Plantation was ejected from her 2000 Mitsubishi Montero and died at Broward General Medical Center.
If Leyritz was driving with a suspended license, he would face an additional charge in the Fort Lauderdale case, police Sgt. Frank Sousa said.
Leyritz's attorney, Jeffrey Ostrow, said he had ``no knowledge of his license being suspended in the state of Florida or in New York or otherwise.'' Leyritz, of Davie, has posted an $11,000 bond, police said.
He played for six major league teams, starred in the 1996 World Series and was last in the majors in 2000.
