No matter how action packed your May has been, I think Cincinnati Reds’ pitcher Aroldis Chapman has you beat. Not only is Aroldis Chapman the best reliever in baseball (still hasn’t allowed an earned run), but he has also been sued in ridiculous lawsuit, and arrested for reckless driving when he was driving 20 MPH over the speed limit. Now, however, the wackiest thing yet has happened. Aroldis Chapman’s hotel room was robbed while a woman was tied to the bed. Double-You Tee Eff?
Here’s a witness’ description to the whole situation.
“Officers who were dispatched to the hotel found a 26-year-old woman tied up and crying. Security guards told officers that they were alerted by two guests who heard a woman screaming for help. The guests, who were staying in a room on the same floor, went into the hallway to see what was going on found the woman with her hands bound by cloth napkins”
Sounds like a scene from Dexter, without the dismemberment and everything. Needless to say, something is getting a little fishy here with Aroldis Chapman. I wouldn’t be surprised if some Cuban cartel or whatever is trying to nail this guy, and that would really stink because Aroldis Chapman is easily one of the most exciting pitchers in the game of baseball.
I’m just hoping the Cubans on the Chicago White Sox, Alexei Ramiez and Dayan Viciedo, didn’t tick off the wrong people back in the mainland. I’m starting to finally like Viciedo. I don’t want a Scarface type raid on his abode!
Obviously, my speculation is a worst-case scenario, with a low chance of it actually being true. But what are the odds a guy gets sued, arrested, and robbed in a month? Not that high, folks. I just hope Aroldis Chapman and everyone affliated with him will be a-ok. And that my worst fears are indeed ridiculous thoughts from seeing too many movies.
