Mets acting GM Zack Scott was arrested early Tuesday morning and is facing DUI charges.

This occurred after he was caught asleep in his car in White Plains, according to The New York Post.

The Mets said in a statement Wednesday they were "surprised and deeply disappointed" after learning of the allegations Wednesday morning.

"We take this matter very seriously. Zack will not be traveling with the team for our upcoming road trip while we learn more and determine next steps."

Per White Plains Police Capt. James Spencer, who spoke to the Post, Scott refused to give blood or take a breathalyzer test. He took a field sobriety test and failed.

Scott was released after being charged, and is due back in court in White Plains on Thursday.

On Monday night, Scott attended a charity event for the Amazin' Mets Foundation at owner Steve Cohen's house, though that event ended well before Scott's arrest.

The 44-year-old Scott took over as acting GM earlier this season after the team fired Jared Porter following an ESPN report that detailed explicit text messages and pictures sent to a female reporter in 2016 while he was with the Chicago Cubs.
