PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- The Mets say bullpen catcher Eric Langill has been suspended without pay for seven days after being charged in a drunken driving accident Sunday in central Florida.

The Mets said in a release Wednesday that Langill would also be required to seek counseling through the Employee Assistance Program.

The 32-year-old Langill was arrested Sunday night after losing control at a traffic circle, crashing into a concrete fountain and flipping his car.

Langill was charged with DUI with property damage. He was released from jail Monday morning.
