NEW YORK, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- A New York woman is being held in lieu of $200,000 bail on a charge of stalking Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman and trying to extort money from him.
Louise Meanwell, who says she had an affair with Cashman after he separated from his wife, appeared in court Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported. Cashman says he did not have an affair with her, although he gave her $6,000 in checks.
Meanwell allegedly told Cashman she was pregnant and had an abortion. Her mother says the story was untrue.
Judge Alexander Tisch granted orders of protection Tuesday to the children of Kimberly Brennan, a Cashman girlfriend. More than a dozen people now have orders of protection against Meanwell, including her ex-husband, two former boyfriends, her own daughter, Brennan, Cashman, his ex-wife and his two children, the newspaper said.
Meanwell allegedly went to war with Brennan on Facebook, the New York Post reported.
