Former Major League Baseball pitcher Danny Serafini is in some MAJOR trouble … ’cause he just got arrested for serious felonies!!
Serafini and his alleged accomplice, Samantha Scott, were busted in Nevada Friday for the 2021 fatal shooting of Robert Gary Spohr and attempted murder of Wendy Wood.
Cops said the victims were Serafini’s in-laws, but they wouldn’t characterize the relationship between the ex-Minnesota Twins player and Scott.
According to a June 2021 press release, officers were called to a home in North Lake Tahoe, California, and discovered Spohr had been shot to death.
His wife, Wendy, suffered a bullet wound in the same attack and was rushed to a local hospital, where she was released after treatment. She passed away a year later.
Security video from their house shows a hooded masked man with a backpack lurking around the property in the hours before the bloodshed. Investigators have not disclosed a motive, and formal charges have yet to be filed against Serafini and Scott.
In his 7-year MLB career, Serafini pitched not only for the Twins, but also the San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates and Colorado Rockies.
