Austin Krum, selected by the Yankees in the ninth round of the 2007 draft, was arrested in Tampa after refusing to leave a restaurant. 

Krum allegedly tried to start a fight inside “Tia’s Tex Mex Restaurant” and was asked to leave numerous times.  He was eventually charged with trespassing and resisting an officer without violence.

Krum, who turned 22 in the offseason, made his professional debut with Staten Island last season.  He hit .238 with one home run and 22 RBI in 60 games.  He was unlikely to be on the Thunder roster any time soon, and this certainly won’t help.
