President of Royals minor league affiliate arrested for public intoxication

The president and chief operating officer of the Lexington Legends, the Single-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, was jailed early Sunday on public intoxication charges after making a fool of himself at a local gas station.

According to the report, 31-year-old Andy Shea entered the gas station and was "bumping into the counters as he made his way to the restroom." Additionally, the report also stated that he "repeatedly dropped items on the floor" while attempting to get items from the grill station. Whoops.

Things began to get even worse for Shea when he tried to leave the store without paying. This is when the police were called and they came to discover Shea as having bloodshot and watery eyes and smelling strongly of alcohol. Police said he "was manifestly under the influence of alcohol in a public place" and was a danger to himself and those around him.

Shea is scheduled to be arraigned in court June 17.

This isn't his first run-in with the law, though. The last one came in September 2012 when Shea was ticketed for leaving the scene of an accident. Apparently, Shea is an avid supporter of the old hit-and-run, which is not too surprising considering he is the head man of a baseball club.

The Legends have yet to comment regarding the incident.
