After being mistakenly identified as a car thief, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was stopped in Connecticut by police and held at gunpoint.
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had his car stolen last week, but police were apparently unaware that he had it back and mistakenly identified him as the car thief.
Cashman told the New York Post:
“I had a welcoming committee descend upon me as I pulled out of that gas station.
…. They’re clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty.”
Cashman said he was told to “not make any rash movements” as he exited his Jeep.
“They searched my car, asked for my ID,” he said. “I explained what was going on.”
This whole scenario is a little ironic, to say the least, considering that Cashman is always robbing other teams of players that come to the Bronx and turn into superstars.
At least everything seems all good for Brian Cashman now and all he needs to focus on is making sure the Yankees win the World Series this year.
