PITCHER IS A COUNTERFEITER AS WELL AS A WIFE BEATER

FRESNO GRIZZLIES PITCHER JULIO MATEO

Former Seattle Mariners reliever Julio Mateo has been arrested on counterfeiting and forgery charges. Mateo is now pitching for the Triple A Fresno Grizzlies of the Pacific Coast League. The Grizzlies are a farm team of the San Francisco Giants.

Mateo was arrested in Albuquerque after passing a counterfeit $100 bill to a cab driver. When police searched Mateo’s hotel room they found numerous bogus bills.

This isn’t Mateo’s first brush with the law. He pleaded guilty to assault charges last year after he admitted hitting his wife in a Manhattan hotel room. That incident prompted the Mariners to trade Mateo.
