This is the type of reason why the Mets didn’t want Wally Backman as their manager.

I liked Wally when I met him at the second QBC that he was our first at. Wally was also very nice to me when I drove him to the airport. I can’t speak of his innocence or his guilt in this but there seem there is a pattern with his behavior. We don’t know the whole story but geez.

Former Mets second baseman Wally Backman was arrested Friday morning for allegedly shoving his girlfriend into a wall and stopping her from calling cops, officials said.
Backman, who was part of the 1986 World Series champion Mets, was charged with harassment and criminal mischief for the scuffle at the woman’s Riverhead home around 7:40 a.m., police said.
The woman claimed Backman pushed her into a wall and twisted her hand, court officials confirmed. He also allegedly tried to prevent the woman from calling the police by grabbing her cellphone.

I hope if any of this is true Wally gets some help he that he might need.
