Woman charged with stalking, extorting Yankees general manager Brian Cashman
NEW YORK (AP) ' A woman has been charged with stalking and shaking down New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.
Louise Neathway is being arraigned Thursday night in a Manhattan court. Prosecutors say she extorted $6,000 from Cashman, tried to squeeze $15,000 more and engaged in "a long-term effort to control and manipulate" him.
She's also known as Louise Meanwell. Defense lawyers Alan Abramson and Stephen McCarthy say she denies the accusation, and they expect to "obtain a favorable result."
The Yankees declined to comment.
