Tigers’ Delmon Young Hopes to Reach Hate-Crime Deal
Young stood before the judge for about 30 seconds at Manhattan Criminal Court before his case was adjourned. Young is supposed to return to court Nov. 7 — after the World Series — to face a misdemeanor charge of aggravated harassment.
On the morning of April 27, Young, 26, got into an altercation with four men outside the Hilton Hotel, where the Tigers were staying, and used an anti-Semitic slur, according to police. The Tigers were in New York to play the Yankees and began a three-game series later that day.
Ollen said he and the Manhattan’s district attorney’s office will try to work out a deal. Young’s charge is punishable by up to a year in jail. The Associated Press reported that prosecutors aren’t making an offer at the moment.
