Jayson Werth to police officer during DUI arrest: ‘I’m not sure I trust you’

Former Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was arrested for a DUI back in April, and a video of the arrest newly obtained by TMZ shows Werth airing out his opinions about the police — or at least the police officer who arrested him.

Werth, who retired from baseball in June, was in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the start of the season, trying to catch on with the Seattle Mariners. He was pulled over on April 17 for having an expired registration, and the officer suspected Werth of being drunk while they interacted during the stop.

Werth claimed that he was borrowing the car, which is why he didn’t have the registration. He handed the officer what he called a “courtesy card” that appeared to inform the officer that Werth was a Major League Baseball player. Werth followed that with “we do a lot of work with you guys.”
