Reds prospect arrested, charged with hitting girlfriend with rock

A Reds minor-league prospect was arrested early Saturday morning in Glendale, Ariz., after he was accused of knocking his girlfriend unconscious with a giant rock, azcentral.com reported.

Tanner Rahier, 21, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault with intent to injure, according to police reports. He was later released.

Rahier told investigators he did not know the woman and didn’t throw rocks at her. However, police say he got into an argument with a bartender Pullano’s Pizza, refusing to pay his bill. To defuse the situation, Rahier’s girlfriend brought him outside the restaurant, where they began arguing.

Rahier started to throw rocks at his girlfriend, one of which hit her on the side of the head and caused her to lose consciousness, according to police reports. The rock was roughly 8 inches across.

An ambulance transported the woman to the hospital, where she underwent tests. She may need stitches for her injuries.

Ted Lilly Charged With Felony Insurance Fraud

Flo from Progressive is not going to like this.

The Tribune in San Luis Obispo (Ca.) reports that Lilly was charged back in October with three felony counts of “filing a false insurance claim, filing a false statement in connection with an insurance claim, and concealing a material fact in connection with an insurance claim,” and faces five years in jail.

According to the Department of Insurance, the uninsured Lilly got an estimate for damage on his motor home, bought insurance five days later, and then claimed the damage four days after that…

According to Kincaid, many body shops enter repair estimates into a database accessible by insurance companies. Lilly was caught in a sting that has netted at least 200 people who bought or enhanced their coverage after an accident occurred.
