Ex-Baltimore Orioles DH Delmon Young is under investigation for threatening to kill a Miami valet. At the time he was trying to gain entry to a hotel in the Brickell hotel and he began hurling latin slurs at the Cuban valet.
After the attendant repeated that the club was closed, Young told him, “I’m gonna (expletive) kill you, you Latin piece of (expletive),” the report said.
Young then reached over the valet podium and placed his hands on the attendant’s neck, but the attendant was able to break free and ran for help, the report said.
In 2012, Delmon was accused of assaulting a man in Manhattan when denied entry to a club and let loose an anti-Semitic rant that night.
Delmon has always been a talented athlete but he’s never had the mental toughness to capitalise on his physical talents. This is just the latest example.
