Vladimir Guerrero faces no charges related to … whatever happened

The police say Vlad Guerrero assaulted one of their own. Vlad Guerrero said he did nothing of the kind. Now Vlad Guerrero’s lawyer says that Vlad faces no charges out of it.

Advantage: Vlad.

I know nothing about the criminal justice system in the Dominican Republic. But after several random cases down there in the past few years, I get the sense that it operates in a very different fashion than that which you or I are used to.

So, no hits, a walk and win for Vlad Guerrero. Not bad for a guy who can’t get a job playing baseball anymore.

    Let’s see: big star commits a crime of some sort, then receives no punishment. Nope, I’d say it looks all too similar to US justice.

      Kind of like the hundreds of people that lie to grand juries and Congress every year that aren’t charged with anything. oddly, somehow athletes seem to get charged. See Bonds, Tejada, Clemens, few track athletes I can’t remember, etc…

    If Vlad was involved in the altercation, I have no problem believing that he swung at anything and everyone that was in reachable distance.
