Woman found tied up in Aroldis Chapman’s hotel room fined $164 after guilty plea

Remember back in May when police found a woman tied up in Aroldis Chapman’s hotel room?

She claimed to have been robbed of $200,000 worth of jewelry, but then changed her story several times and was later charged with lying to police. Well, this week she pleaded guilty in exchange for the charge being lessened from a misdemeanor to disorderly conduct.

Moriah Balingit of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the woman–a 27-year-old named Claudia Manrique–failed a polygraph test and “after the 12 hours of questioning police determined she was being untruthful.”

Her punishment after all of this? “Manrique was ordered to pay an $164 fine, according to court records.”

What a weird story.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
