Jon Denney, a minor-league catcher with the Boston Red Sox, was arrested Thursday for allegedly driving with a suspended driver’s licence.

Then things really went sideways.

The 19-year-old was issued a citation just before midnight Wednesday in Fort Myers Beach, Fla., after he was pulled over. He gave police a licence that was restricted for business and emergency purposes due to an alleged DUI in Arkansas, the police report said.

Denney got a ride home but, two hours later, cops saw him drive his F-150 pickup truck out of a parking lot and again pulled him over.

Denney then got belligerent with the cops, the report says. He told them he was in the area “partying and looking to get some (p---y)” and he “made more money than we could ever see.”

The report adds that Denney said “he would be out in no time because of who he played for and that he made three million a year.”

Denney, who was released Thursday morning after posting a $500 bond, was drafted in the third round last year and signed for $875,000.

The Red Sox told Yahoo! Sports they were aware of Denney’s arrest but would not comment.
