Breaking News...

Any one who knows the New York Yankees knows who Don Mattingly is. What most people don't know is that his actual home is only about 45 minutes from where I live. His home is on Darmstadt Road outside of Evansville, Indiana. I remember my grandparents always slowing down so I could look at his massive stone mansion with a stone fence and gate. He even had a restaurant in Evansville. To put it in a way, people around there were proud he was from their town. Today was not such a proud day though. According to channel 7 news his wife attacked him and he called the police to have her removed from his property and put a personal protection order in effect. When police came they arrested her for public intoxication and some other charges. Since they took her to jail the protection order was dropped. However he personally requested a restraining order and the removal of all rights to firearms when and if she makes bail. They also said they would have more details on the 6:00 news. How bout that? I guess no one's life is perfect, huh?
