Police in Phoenix arrested Detroit Tigers catcher Gerald Laird and brother Brandon Laird–himself a New York Yankees prospect, after tussling with security guards during the Phoenix Suns win over the Boston Celtics.
Back on Dec. 28, 2009 Gerald Laird was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor assault for allegedly hitting a security guard from behind. According to witnesses, security had already talked to the Lairds about their behavior.
Laird had claimed initially that the whole thing was a miscommunication. Now details are starting to emerge and they involve Charlsie House, the wife of Boston Celtics guard Eddie House.
Charlsie House reportedly told Phoenix police that the Lairds’ grandfather touched her inappropriately.
Memo to Yankees prospects: If any elders in your family are a cross between Glenn Quagmire and Abe Simpson, don’t bring them along when you’re out trying to scope big booty hoes…it can only lead to trouble.
