Yankees’ Brian Cashman mistaken for criminal, police draw guns on him

Brian Cashman has had some tough experiences in 21 years as GM of the New York Yankees, but none as harrowing as what happened to him Friday.

A group of Connecticut police officers drew their guns on Cashman after apparently mistaking him for an armed criminal, according to the New York Post.

Seems that Cashman’s white Jeep Wrangler had been stolen last weekend. Although police recovered the vehicle and returned it to him Wednesday, the car was still listed as stolen.

Cashman stopped Friday at a Darien, Connecticut, gas station, and by coincidence, police were on the lookout for a white Jeep believed to be driven by a man who pulled a gun at a local medical office. Police spied Cashman’s SUV at the gas station, ran the license plate – which came back as a stolen car – and took action.
