Aroldis Chapman: Woman in Hotel Robbery Charged by Police for False Report
The saga of the Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman's hotel room robbery last month takes another twist.
According to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com), Claudia Manrique, the woman who claimed to have been tied up in Chapman's hotel room by a thief who made off with cash and jewelry, has been charged with a misdemeanor by Pittsburgh police for filing a false police report.
Investigators say Manrique claimed she was tied up in Chapman's hotel room by an unknown assailant who made off with about $6,000 in jewelry and other items on May 29. The Reds were in town for a series with the Pirates then.
But police say Manrique later changed her story, saying she first encountered the man in a store and he showed up at Chapman's room seeking a bag filled with more than $200,000 in jewelry.
After the robbery happened, Chapman told police that he had recently started dating Manrique, but then it was revealed that she was married.
It is hard to say that this is a surprise. As more information kept coming out, something seemed off about Manrique's story. The original details were scary, yet the deeper the investigation went, it became clear that details were being changed.
Plus, there were other allegations from an ex-boyfriend who said that Manrique used to steal from him when they were dating.
Right now, it would appear the only person who knows what really happened in that hotel room on May 29 is Manrique.
