Warrant issued for Burgos

An arrest warrant was issued Friday in the Dominican Republic for Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos on charges stemming from a hit-and-run accident that killed two women.

“We recommend that Mr. Burgos turn himself in so we can start the judicial process,” Prosecutor Raul Quiroz said.

Burgos’ SUV struck Josefina Minaya Martinez, 38, and Angely Fana, 29, Tuesday in the town of Nagua, and both died at a hospital. Witnesses placed Burgos behind the wheel, but his cousin Edwin Silvestre Sanchez claimed to be driving. Sanchez was released from police custody Friday.

Quiroz said Burgos had recently been arrested on a charge of illegal weapon possession and released. Burgos was also arrested last month in New York on assault and harassment charges.
