Yankees GM Cashman, A Victim Of A Stalker
For the first time in history, a member of the New York Yankees’ front office has had the squeeze put on him. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was stalked and shaken down by an English woman with whom he had a past relationship. She got him to pay her $6,000 and demanded more by threatening to harm his reputation.
The stalker, Louise Neathway, was arraigned on grand larceny, stalking and harassment charges. Her lawyers said Cashman had had an inappropriate relationship with Neathway and he turned on her when it ended badly. As if that is a good reason to stalk and shake someone down!!!
After Cashman told Neathway last April that he didn’t want to talk to her anymore and even changed his contact information to avoid her, she asked him to pay for a $15,000-plus medical procedure and threatened to contact the press and his family with claims that would hurt his personal relationships and professional standing, according to a court complaint.
In response, he put $6,000 into two of her bank accounts Jan. 18 and tried again to extricate himself, but she instead demanded more money for operations, the complaint said.
Neathway, who has a history of arrests on similar charges, is a British native who also goes by Louise Meanwell. She has a record that goes back to a 1998 trespassing arrest in North Carolina. She’s currently on probation stemming from a 2008 trespassing conviction in a New Jersey case that involved allegations of stalking and sending someone as many as 200 text messages in a weekend, and she has an open 2010 Manhattan harassment case.
Neathway was being held on $300,000 bond. Her next court date is Tuesday.
