He’s outta here!
Detroit Tigers star and World Series failure Delmon Young has pled “guilty” to aggravated harassment after shouting an anti-Semitic slur at a panhandler earlier this year and tackling another person to the ground.
Via TMZ reports:
Delmon was arrested for the incident in NYC in April — when he was approached by a Jewish-looking panhandler (whatever that means) outside a hotel, and shouted, “F**king Jews! F**king Jews!”
Delmon was confronted by another person on the street after shouting the slur, and the baseball star tackled the man … who then called 911. Cops showed up and arrested Delmon for aggravated harassment.
Delmon has now pled “guilty” as part of a plea deal — in which he was sentenced to perform 10 days community service, and participate in a hate crime program at the Museum of Tolerance in NYC.
If he completes everything, Delmon will be allowed to withdraw his “guilty” plea to “aggravated harassment” — and plead to just “harassment” instead, a lesser infraction.
Good thing they got all the steroids out of sports, or this a-hole might have gone and done something really stupid. Sorry, is our sarcasm showing?
