Looks like someone had too much to drink last night.
Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young faces a hate crime-related charge in connection with a dispute outside a hotel along New York’s 6th Avenue early this morning, a New York police spokesman told the Free Press.
“Basically, there was an incident at the hotel (and) some anti-Semitic remarks,” said Detective Joseph Cavitolo, who added alcohol was involved.
Early this afternoon, the Tigers released a statement that did not address whether Young would be in the lineup when the Tigers open a three-game series with the Yankees tonight.
What were his remarks?
A panhandler wearing a yamulke [sic] approached a group of people to ask for some change — and that’s when Young, who was nearby, started shouting, “F–king Jews! F–king Jews!”
