Former Pitcher Matt Bush Sentenced To Jail For DUI

Former Tampa Bay Rays pitcher, Matt Bush, was sentenced to serve over 4 years in prison after being convicted of DUI. Bush was involved in a DUI crash in March 2012 that resulted in serious bodily injury. Bush plead no contest and had 6 other counts against him dropped. Matt Bush has had 3 DUI convictions now and has already spent 9 months in jail. Bush will also lose his driver’s license for 10 years since this is his third DUI conviction.

According to police, Bush’s blood alcohol content (BAC) level was .18% on the night of the accident, which is more than double the legal limit of .08%. Bush had struck Tony Tufano, 72, who was on his motorcycle before leaving the scene of the accident. Bush has been sentenced to a total of 51 months in jail, which his attorney, Russell Kirshy, said was a fair deal considering Bush’s DUI history. Matt Bush was once considered one of baseball’s most promising new athletes and was the 2004 top overall draft pick. Unfortunately, he was released from the Rays this past October.
