Sneed has learned that a Chicago cop is in dugout doo-doo for allegedly soliciting autographs on sports memorabilia — which he claimed was for a police charity fundraiser — from New York Yankees star Derek Jeter during the Chicago White Sox-Yankees battle at U.S. Cellular Field in May.
Sneed is told the Yankees organization has filed a complaint with the Chicago Police Department about a 9th District Chicago cop who served as extra security at the Cell during the four-game series, claiming the officer broke the rules by soliciting Jeter’s autograph. Sources are questioning the authenticity of it being done for a police charity.
