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.
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.
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.
