Report: Arrest announcement today

By Adam Rubin

The arrest of former clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels will be announced on Wednesday by the NYPD, sources familiar with the case told The New York Times. Samuels' lawyer, Michael F. Bachner, told the newspaper: "We don’t know what the charges are and I’ll reserve comment until such time as I’ve had a chance to review them."

The Times reports:

The specific charges were not immediately clear, but the investigation by New York police detectives and prosecutors in the Queens district attorney’s office has focused on what the people have said appeared to be a pattern of theft over several decades, from autographed bats and balls and other equipment to hundreds of uniforms. The people all spoke on the condition of anonymity because the charges have yet to be announced.
