Former Major League Baseball star and two-time World Series champion Johnny Damon was arrested Friday morning in Florida and is being held at the Orange County Corrections Department.

According to CBS Miami, "Damon was arrested by Windermere Police around 8:15 a.m. and booked on charges for driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence. The 47-year-old had a blood alcohol level above .20, according to police reports."

Damon's blood alcohol level was 0.30, according to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

Damon's final MLB season came with Cleveland in 2012 when he was 38 years old. He is best known for his role in helping the Boston Red Sox complete an improbable American League Championship Series comeback versus the New York Yankees and win a World Series title over the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004. Damon joined the Yankees as a free agent in late 2005 and won a championship with them in 2009.

He played 18 MLB seasons between the Kansas City Royals, Oakland Athletics, Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Rays, Red Sox, Yankees and Cleveland.
