SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)–A woman has filed a complaint against former
Yankees center fielder Bernie Williams for allegedly hitting her at a nightclub
while she took his picture.
Officer Angel Nazario said the woman claimed Williams snatched the camera,
damaged it and hit her in the face. The incident allegedly happened around 2:30
a.m. Thursday at a San Juan nightclub, hours after the Puerto Rican team beat
the Netherlands 5-0 in the World Baseball Classic.
Williams, who is playing for Puerto Rico, left with the team on Thursday for
Miami. It will play the United States in the tournament’s second round.
Officer Marisol de Jesus said police are investigating.
Team manager Lou Melendez did not immediately return a call for comment.
I can’t imagine Williams actually doing what this woman claims…but who knows what might happen at 2:30 a.m. in a nightclub.
