Gerald Laird attended anger management classes

Feb 22, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

Remember that crazy story from last month about how Tigers catcher Gerald Laird and several family members had a drunken altercation at a Celtics-Suns game with Eddie House’s wife and, eventually, arena security? Here was my quick-version recap at the time, in case you missed it:

Just about everyone in the entire Laird family showed up to a Suns-Celtics game drunk and then made their way to an in-arena bar for some more drinking, Grandpa tried to get fresh with an NBA player’s wife, Brandon got angry and turned the harassment level up a few notches, and Gerald sucker-punched a security officer once things got out of hand.

MLB.com’s Jason Beck notes that Laird’s “legal issues” have been taken care of and “he attended anger management classes as part of a deal.” No word yet on whether his brother, uncle, and grabby 70-year-old grandfather were classmates. Oddly enough House may have received the harshest punishment despite not even being involved: He was traded to the Knicks last week.

    Who is nifty with photoshop??? Remove the cap and uniform and you have a fully grown, full blown ‘fetal alcohol syndrome’ infant. You shouldn’t use such cases in such light, but Gerald is a dead ringer. PS I’m glad there was an update on this. I somehow needed closure after laughing at grandad too hard several weeks ago. Nice work.

    Cars and houses are expensive and not everybody can buy it. However, loans was created to support different people in such cases.
