Reds player's girlfriend charged with filing false reports


Police in Pittsburgh say the girlfriend of a Reds player made up the story of a hotel robbery last month.

Aroldis Chapman's girlfriend, Claudia Manrique, 26, of Silver Spring, MD, is charged with one count of filing false reports.

She originally told police that a hotel maintenance man robbed her of more than $6,000 worth of jewelry and other items on May 29. The Reds were in Pittsburgh for a series against the Pirates at the time.

But police say Manrique later changed her story, saying she first encountered the man in a store and he showed up at Chapman's room seeking a bag filled with more than $200,000 in jewelry.
