Report: Mets Dismiss General Manager Zack Scott After DUI Arrest

The Mets dismissed acting general manager Zack Scott on Monday, according to the New York Daily News's Deesha Thosar and Dennis Young.

Scott was placed on leave by the Mets in August after being arrested for driving under the influence in White Plains, N.Y. He pleaded not guilty on Sept. 2 and will face trial in early December.

The Mets hired Scott in December after the organization fired then-general manager Jared Porter, who was dismissed after he reportedly sent explicit, unsolicited texts to a female reporter.
