Perez marijuana case off until Sept. 3 in Ohio

Posted: Updated:

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (AP) - The marijuana possession case against Cleveland Indians 2-time All-Star closer Chris Perez and his wife could extend into the final month of the regular season.

The two made a brief appearance in Rocky River Municipal Court on Tuesday in suburban Cleveland and the case was continued to Sept. 3.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, attorneys discussed evidence sharing.

Perez and his wife Melanie pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor possession charges after marijuana was mailed to their home in their dog's name. Police say they were tipped off by postal inspectors to suspicious packages.

Outside legal experts say the charge typically is handled like a traffic ticket and fine.
