PUNTA GORDA, Fla. — 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."
Bush's arraignment is set for May 21.
