Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Bush is being held on more than $1 million bail on charges that he left the scene of an accident that seriously injured a motorcyclist.
Bush made his first court appearance Saturday. Charlotte County Circuit Court records show that Bush remained in custody on multiple DUI-related charges and counts of leaving the scene of an injury accident and driving with a suspended license.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Bush kept driving after hitting a motorcycle Thursday. The motorcyclist remains hospitalized.
Bush’s attorney, Russell Kirshy, said the baseball player would likely enter a rehab program once he gets released.
Kirshy said, ”We hope and pray the victim is OK, and we hope and pray we can get Matt back on track.”
