Delmon Young’s arrest comes on the six-year anniversary of his suspension for throwing bat at umpire

After reading Craig Calcaterra’s post about the incident one reader tipped me off to the fact that the arrest comes on the six-year anniversary of Young being suspended indefinitely by the International League for throwing his bat at an umpire in a Triple-A game.
That incident occurred on April 26, 2006 and the indefinite suspension followed on April 27, 2006, eventually becoming a 50-game suspension. I’ll assume that Young wasn’t “highly intoxicated” because he was doing some sort of six-year anniversary celebration, but either way he might want to cancel all April 26/27 plans in the future.
