    Four-Time All-Star Reardon Arrested on Robbery Charges
    Former Reliever Charged With Holding Up a Jewelry Store for Cash

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Dec. 27) - Former major league pitcher Jeff Reardon was charged with a jewelry store robbery and held pending a bond hearing Tuesday.


    The 50-year-old Reardon walked into Hamilton Jewelers at the Gardens Mall on Monday and handed an employee a note saying he had a gun and the store was being robbed, according to Palm Beach Gardens police.

    Reardon fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police found him at a nearby restaurant, recovered the stolen money and charged him with armed robbery.

    The four-time All-Star was 73-77 with 367 saves and a 3.16 ERA in 16 seasons with the New York Mets, Montreal Expos, Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees.

    i hated seeing that on the news this morning. Jeff Reardon was one of my favorite players when i started watching baseball in the early 90's.

    I guess all the fame and fortune you can get from being in the big leagues isn't enough to keep a sinner from what he does best...sinning.

    Reardon said his act was due to his failure to take his meds, but robbery is ROBBERY, a FELONY. He should be treated(and sentenced) same as anyone else who pulls a stickup.
