Yankees GM Brian Cashman reportedly found himself surrounded by police on Friday afternoon.
According to the New York Post, Cashman was swarmed by police at gas station in Darien, Conn. on Friday afternoon as he was suspected of being a car thief.
Cashman had reported his white Jeep Wrangler stolen last Saturday. The car was later found abandoned in the Bronx, but was not removed from the NYPD's stolen car list. So as the Yankees GM attempted to drive to the Norwalk Police department to have his car processed, that's when he was stopped.
"They executed a very tactful interception," Cashman told the Post. "They're clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty."
"They searched my car, asked for my ID. I explained what was going on."
Cashman also told the Post that when his car was found by the NYPD, it was towed to an auto shop. He retrieved it from the shop, paid the towing fee, but the Norwalk Police had not been alerted that the car had been found.
At the end of the ordeal, Cashman and his car have been re-united, and the car is reportedly no longer on the stolen list.
"Someone did not remove it from the stolen list, Cashman told the Post. "It's a mistake, but at least nothing harmful came from that."
