Newman charged with DUI in TampaBy
Mark Newman, the Yanks’ senior vice president of baseball operations, was arrested Monday night on suspicion of a DUI. The Associated Press says the team exec refused to take a blood-alcohol test and was released on $500 bail. The Yankees say they’re investigating the situation, and Newman refused to comment. The last Yankee executive to get charged with a DUI was then-team general partner Steve Swindal. After his 2007 arrest and subsequent divorce from Jennifer Steinbrenner, Swindal left the team.
