New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman recently had an unfortunate incident with the police.
Cashman’s car was recently stolen and ultimately returned to him, but a mistake in the process had him at gunpoint by the police.
According to the New York Post, the Yankees leader was at a gas station in Darien, Connecticut on Friday when police swarmed his car because they thought it was still stolen and matched the description of a man waiving a gun at a doctor’s office.

Cashman told the New York Post “six to nine” officers were on the scene and head their weapons ready. Fortunately, it became clear this was a mistake and Cashman said the officers were “very professional and trained.”
All in all, a pretty wild experience for the Yankees GM. I can’t imagine just being at a gas station and then moments later being surrounded by cops pointing guns at you.
That seems like one hell of a crazy way to get your day started.
Now, Cashman has a fun story to tell going forward. Sure, he might have been a bit spooked at the time, but it sounds like the police were great about the whole thing.
I have no doubt at all the clubhouse is going to absolutely love hearing about this experience.
