Former Yankee Pitcher Jeff Reardon in Trouble with the Law
Wednesday, December 28, 2005
Eighties star relief pitcher Jeff Reardon has returned to the headlines this week in a much less flattering light. Reardon was arrested in Florida on Tuesday after using a note to rob a mall jewelry store of a whopping $170.00. The note allegedly informed the sales clerk that he had a gun and was robbing the store. Police caught him at a nearby restaurant and said that he was not armed and did not resist the arrest.

In a move that would bring satisfaction to Tom Cruise’s heart, Reardon reported that the robbery – which is far out of his usual calm character – was due to the antidepressant medication he was taking. Reardon has been taking the drug since the heartbreaking death of his youngest son last year and has also been taking medication for an angioplasty procedure earlier this month. Reardon apparently explained to police that he “flipped on [his] medications and didn't realize what [he] was doing”. Sources ranging from his former team’s analyst to city police agree that Reardon has never caused any trouble in the past.

I would love to get a statement from his prescribing doctors. Had they been negligent in their evaluation of the drug's effects on Reardon? I wonder if the combination of the antidepressant and the heart medication caused regrettable side effects….

    Depression is a huge cause for careless decision making. Take me, for instance. No, I don't do anything harmful like rob jewelry stores, however I am the product of two people who were depressed.

    Looks like Reardon's planning on using the antidepressants as a defense. Check out his attorney's defense strategy:
