Reardon found not guilty because of insanity on armed robbery charge

Jeff Reardon was found not guilty because of insanity on a charge of attempting to rob a jewelry store in Florida, reports Palm Beach Sun-Sentinel

Reardon, who played in two World Series, was taking a dozen medications that impaired his judgment. Attorneys said Reardon was distraught over the 2004 death of a son and had been taking anti-depressants and mood stabilizers.

Defense attorney Mitch Beers, who used a voluntary intoxication defense, said the robbery episode, with Reardon's "thank you" and "please" on the note, was like something out of a Woody Allen movie.


"I don't think I've ever had a speeding ticket before for crying out loud," Reardon said.

Pitching in the major leagues, he added, was easy. "This wasn't," he said.

Reardon is to return before Rapp in six months for a court-ordered review of his case.

Crying out loud is a traffic offense?

There's no crying in traffic offenses.
