AP: ‘Oil Can’ Boyd indicted on charges of making phone threats

Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd surrendered Monday to federal agents in Tupelo to face charges he threatened a former girlfriend.

John G. Raucci, special agent in charge of the FBI in Mississippi, and U.S. Attorney Jim M. Greenlee said in a statement that Boyd allegedly made five telephone calls in which he threatened to harm the ex-girlfriend, who also was his business associate, and possibly her son. Authorities would not say why no firm accusation was made concerning the woman’s son and did not reveal their names.

Boyd was indicted by a federal grand jury in Mississippi earlier this month. The 45-year-old Meridian native, now lives in East Providence, R.I., and plays baseball for the Brockton Rox, an independent minor league team in the Canadian-American League.

So his girlfriend was possibly her son?

Wow.

Who gets caught making phone threats? How hard is it to walk to a payphone?

Back before the Can made it big, I worked with a guy who knew him at Jackson State. Said he had big league ability but was nuts. Two for two.
