Cops: NY mom sent threat when son didn't make team
EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) — A suburban New York woman is accused of sending threatening letters to a Little League official and his son because her boy didn't make a summer baseball travel team.
Nassau County police say 44-year-old Janet Chiauzzi of East Meadow on Long Island also falsely claimed that the official abused his children.
She was arraigned Sunday on charges of stalking, falsely reporting an incident and endangering the welfare of a child.
She didn't respond to a telephone message seeking comment.
Police say when one of her two sons didn't make the team, she wrote "letters of a threatening nature" to the official and his young son. Police say the letters also mentioned the official's wife and daughter.
