From FOX in Tampa -
A minor league pitcher with the New York Yankees was arrested early Thursday morning on trespassing and obstruction charges after he refused to leave a Tampa restaurant.
Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Green Iguana Bar & Grill on Anderson Road just before 2 a.m. Management at the establishment told investigators that George Kontos attempted to re-enter the business after he was asked to leave.
The 21-year-old right-hander with the Tampa Yankees of the Class A Florida State League was again asked to leave. A HCSO deputy attempted to escort him from the premises but he kept pulling and was ultimately taken into custody.
George Kontos is a legit prospect. I hope that he overcomes this issue. Hey, back in May of 1985, Dale Berra and Don Mattingly were both arrested in Kansas City for indecent conduct in public. Boys will be boys. It happens. You just hope that they do grow out of it once they actually run into trouble and learn that you can’t just do what you want all the time.
