Aroldis Chapman’s hotel room robbed; woman found there bound at the wrists

This is … messed up.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Aroldis Chapman‘s hotel room in Pittsburgh was robbed while he was away, presumably at the ballpark or out after the game.  Which, OK, that’s unusual and strange. But what officers found at the scene of the crime is stranger:

Officers who were dispatched to the hotel found a 26-year-old woman tied up and crying. Security guards told officers that they were alerted by two guests who heard a woman screaming for help. The guests, who were staying in a room on the same floor, went into the hallway to see what was going on found the woman with her hands bound by cloth napkins …

Apparently she was in the room, the robbers bluffed their way in, tied her up and robbed the place.

Between this, that strange lawsuit filed against him and the reckless driving in Ohio, Aroldis Chapman has had an eventful couple of weeks with the legal system.

    It would suprise me if it wasn’t in Pittsburgh

      It should surprise you, Pittsburgh as recently as a few years ago was listed as one of the safest cities in the US.

      But go ahead and take a cheap shot at a city that you’ve probably never been to.

    Isn’t your quality of life suppose to improve when you leave Cuba?

      Only if you swim, drift or paddle.

    Chappy’s private life is starting to sound like a Tarantino movie. And those rarely have happy endings.

      Mr. Red?

      • Old Gator - May 30, 2012 at 1:21 PM

        Shut up. You’re Mr. Pink.

        For all I know, you’re the rat.

      • Old Gator - May 30, 2012 at 2:14 PM

        And you can be the psycho, who ain’t perfessional.

    I know Dusty Baker always screws up his relievers, but this is getting ridiculous.

    [Sorry…sorry….I kid. I can’t imagine what this woman went through, and I hope she’s okay.]

    • cur68 - May 30, 2012 at 12:20 PM

      Nah, s’all good, Fearles. I was gonna add a “Dang you Dusty Baker, Dang you to heck!” as is my custom, but you seem to have rendered that moot. Anyhow, I agree that it must have been pretty scary for the young lady. I hope she’s ok.

    did mike leake have an alibi?

  8. WhenMattStairsIsKing - May 30, 2012 at 12:27 PM

    I wonder if the people that robbed him are related to the lawsuit – as sort of a vengeance thing. Either way, Chapman better get all this cleared up quickly. This is too strange and dangerous.

    Inside job. She’s part of the gang. The leaving her tied up is a ruse to cast suspicion elsewhere.

    • sabatimus - May 30, 2012 at 1:33 PM

      All I gotta say is that her story better be ironclad.

    The Beard is after him.

    Aroldis Chapman is the modern day Ed Delahanty.

      That’s scary…

  12. inkedchef - May 30, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    and Todd Frazier was off saving a man from choking…..I guess he can’t be everywhere.

    • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - May 30, 2012 at 1:44 PM

      or can he?

    Ask Ozzie if Fidel Castro had anything to do with this. Ozzie loves that guy.
