A New York City woman filed an assault complaint against Rickey Henderson of the Oakland Athletics, claiming he slapped her during a disagreement in his hotel room early Tuesday, police said.
Sandra Salarinatin, 23, who told police she had been drinking heavily, said she was in Henderson’s room at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan at about 3 a.m. when the incident occurred, police spokesman Lt. Bob Nardoza said. Henderson denied the accusation. “I ain’t got no problem,” he said. “I’ll handle it.”
