Acting general manager Zack Scott’s tenure with the Mets is officially finished, following his placement on administrative leave for a DWI arrest.

An industry source confirmed Monday that Scott won’t be returning to the organization. SNY first reported Scott’s departure. The 44-year-old Scott, who is awaiting trial, was holding out hope as recently as last week that he might return.

Scott was arrested at 4:17 a.m. on Aug. 31 in White Plains, after police found him asleep in a 2018 Toyota on South Lexington Avenue, near the federal courthouse and police headquarters, according to police. After refusing to give blood or submit to a Breathalyzer, Scott failed a field sobriety test.

He was also charged with stopping on a highway, disobeying a traffic control device and failing to notify the Department of Motor Vehicles about a change of address. Scott had attended a fundraiser at team owner Steve Cohen’s home in Greenwich, Conn., earlier that night, but according to multiple sources that event ended by 9 p.m.

After pleading not guilty, Scott appeared in court last month. His case is due for trial on Dec. 8.
