Bernie's Seen Better Days

The Bernie Williams Comeback isn't exactly going according to plan. In his return to baseball Williams is 0-4 with 2 walks. Not only has his on the field game taken a hit, so has his off the field reputation.

Bernie has a complaint filed against him from a woman who says the former Yankee star hit her. According to a police report that was filed, Williams took the camera from the woman damaged it and hit her in the face. Here is a statement released from Williams' manager:
“Yesterday evening we learned of the filing of a complaint against Mr. Bernie Williams. The news has taken us all by surprise. On the night in question, Mr. Williams had gone out after accepting an invitation to be a guest performer with a local music act. Mr. Williams denies any wrongdoing and we feel that some published media reports today are inaccurate. At this time, Mr. Williams has been advised by his legal counsel, José M. Marxuach, to not make any further comments, inasmuch as we do not want to interfere with the ongoing investigation. We want to assure everyone that Mr. Williams will fully cooperate with the local authorities to have this matter clarified as soon as possible.”

I find this a little hard to believe, but then again nothing surprises me anymore. Hopefully Bernie is able to clear up this mess and move forward.
