The Mets placed acting general manager Zack Scott on administrative leave “until further notice,” the team announced Thursday, hours after Scott pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated.

Team president Sandy Alderson will assume Scott’s responsibilities, the Mets said in a statement.

According to ESPN Police found Scott sleeping in his car around a.m. Tuesday morning in White Plains.

He refused to give blood or submit to a breathalyzer before failing the sobriety test.

Scott assumed the role of acting general manager in January after Jared Porter was fired amid sexual harassment allegations.

Scott’s arrest is the latest in a week full of bad press for the Mets.
