Philadelphia Phillies pitching prospect Brody Colvin was arrested early yesterday in Lafayette Louisiana after a early morning altercation with police. Colvin is being charged with misdemeanor assault, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest.
This story was first broken by Daily News correspondent Phil Hagan . Hagan reports that the seventh round draft pick was arrested on Jefferson street, which is a hotspot for bars and nightclubs. It has yet to be reported if Colvin,19, had alcohol in his system at the time of arrest.
Colvin made one appearance for the Gulf Coast League Phillies and played in the Florida Instructional League last season. He was drafted in the seventh round out of St. Thomas More High School and passed up a full ride scholarship to LSU to play for the Phillies.
Colvin was paid a $900,000 signing bonus when he was drafted and was one of MaxPreps top 100 high school prospects.
Full details of the arrest have not been released and it could take up to 10 business days for the police report to be made public.
