Spiezio and female companion v cabdriver

Former Mariner Scott Spiezio (who, you may remember from way back, was brought in to provide clubhouse leadership, grit, and character) was charged with assaulting a cabdriver in Chicago.

Spiezio […] argued with the driver, Gani Musabar Hasan, over the credit card fare, [police spokesman] Bayless said. During the argument, Jennifer Pankratz, 27, reached through the cab’s partition for the credit card, grabbed it and broke Hasan’s glasses, authorities said.

The result:

Pankratz was charged with battery and criminal damage to property, and Spiezio was charged with theft, criminal damage to property and simple assault. Bail for each was set at $1,000.

A quick search reveals Ms. Pankratz has done some modeling and that she is likely the same Jenn who is, reputedly, Spiezio’s girlfriend. Spiezio and Ms. Pankratz can be seen together in this photo.

You can purchase a Pankrantz 2003 “Benchwarmer” collector’s card on a signed (maybe) Ebay right now for $1.34 if you act within the next few days or an unsigned for $3.00 in the next day.

While bidding for those items is not hot, remember for contrast that a Scott Spiezio 1997 rookie card is worth (based on recent sales) under $1.

    People make mistakes. He won’t be the first or the last. He has alot on his plate right now. Nobody knows until they walk in his shoes for one day. I just hope he turns his life back around.
