Case against Indians’ Perez postponed

The marijuana possession case against Cleveland Indians closer

Chris Perez and his wife could extend to the final month of the

season.

The two were at Rocky River Municipal Court on Tuesday in

suburban Cleveland and the case is to resume Sept. 3. According to

The Plain Dealer, attorneys discussed evidence sharing.

Perez and his wife, Melanie, pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor

possession charges after marijuana was mailed to their home in

their dog’s name. Police say they were tipped off by postal

inspectors to suspicious packages.
