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.
