Major League Baseball player Delmon Young was arrested late Sunday night in Miami, accused of choking and threatening to kill a valet attendant, and using ethnic slurs.
Young allegedly grabbed a valet attendant by the neck at the Viceroy hotel in Miami after he wouldn’t open a door with access to a club.
“Stupid Cuban, open the f—king door,” Young allegedly told the victim. After repeatedly telling Young he couldn’t open the door because the club was closed, Young said “I’m gonna f—king kill you, you Latin piece of sh-t” and then reached over the valet podium and grabbed the victim around his neck with both hands, strangling him, the police report states.
The victim said he was able to break away from Young’s hands. Young then fled but was later met by police at his residence, which is also at the Viceroy. Police say Young answered the door naked from his waist down. According to police, Young said he didn’t know anything about the incident, but was identified by the victim.
