FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -  Boston Red Sox minor league catcher Jon Denney has been arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license.
  
A report issued by the Lee County Sheriff's Office says Denney, who was arrested Thursday at 4:06 a.m., "became belligerent" and began to curse at officers. The 19-year-old Denney faces a March 31 trial date.
  
General manager Ben Cherington says Saturday the team is putting together a program for Denney to deal with his issues, and he probably won't be on the field for some time.
  
Denney was drafted by the Red Sox in the third round last year out of high school in Oklahoma. He had a .379 on-base percentage with no homers and two RBIs in rookie ball, playing 26 games in the Gulf Coast League.
  
A player in the Red Sox organization has been arrested during spring training for at least three straight years.
