SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - August 31, 2009
Lackawanna County Chief Deputy Sheriff Dominick Manetti says
40-year-old Michael Cortezar entered the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre
Yankees administrative offices during Thursday night's game upset
about a catering problem. Manetti says Cortezar then grabbed the
2008 Governors' Cup from a trophy case and smashed it on the floor.
The farm club won the International League title last year to
capture the trophy.
Manetti says Cortezar was arraigned Friday on charges including
vandalism and making terroristic threats. A preliminary hearing is
set for Sept. 2.
A woman who answered the phone at Cortezar's Peckville home said
he had no comment.
