No Plea Offer So Far for Tigers’ Young in NYC Hate-Crime Harassment Case
Prosecutors are not offering a plea deal to Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young, who’s accused of making anti-Semitic remarks during a fight outside a New York hotel.
Young was briefly in a Manhattan court Tuesday for an update on his misdemeanor hate-crime harassment case. A prosecutor says he isn’t making any plea offer, at least for now.
Police say Young yelled anti-Jewish epithets at a group of tourists, got into a tussle and tackled one to the ground last month. The Tigers were in New York to play the Yankees.
Defense lawyer Daniel Ollen (OH’-lehn) has said Young reacted to something said to him. Young has said he regrets what happened.
He declined to comment Tuesday. He’s free on $5,000 bond and due back in court Aug. 2.
