While the fundraiser was held prior to the arrest, there’s a bunch of time and distance unaccounted for from the event’s end to Zack Scott’s arrest.
Steve Cohen’s fundraiser reportedly ended around 9:00 PM in Connecticut, while the arrest occurred a little after 4 am in White Plains, New York.
There was undoubtedly a stop (or more) from the time Zack Scott left Cohen’s to him being found passed out in his car.
On Wednesday, the Mets released a statement on the DUI.
We were surprised and deeply disappointed to learn this morning about an alleged DUI involving Zack Scott,” the statement read. “We take this matter very seriously. Zack will not be traveling with the team for our upcoming road trip while we learn more and determine next steps.
Obviously, we don’t know the condition Zack Scott was in when he left Steve Cohen’s, or if he had any drinks at the event. We’ll await any more information.
