The University increased tuition this academic

Rocker-rage leads to charges
NEW YORK (AP) - A man imprisoned
in the death of his newborn son pleaded inno-
cent yesterday to a charge of interfering with
police after a friend allegedly threw a bottle at
Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker.
Police said the bottle was thrown from the
first-base box seats. It landed about 10 feet
from Rocker as he warmed up on the mound
at Shea Stadium, where the Braves played the
Mets on Tuesday night.
When police tried to arrest Raymond
Maniaci, of Wyckoff, N.J., his hometown
friend Brian Peterson got between them and
Maniaci and refused to step away, police told
the Daily News and New York Post.
Peterson was released on his own recog-
nizance yesterday after pleading innocent at
his arraignment. He had served 11/2 years in
prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter
-- along with his girlfriend Amy Grossberg
- in the 1996 death of their newborn son at a
Maniaci pleaded innocent to a charge of
reckless endangerment and also was released.
Peterson told his mother, Barbara
Zuchowski, that his arrest Tuesday was a mis-
understanding and that he was turning to step
aaway as one officer had instructed, his
Delaware lawyer, Joseph Hurley, said after
talking to the mother.
"A second cop implies Brian's physical
movement as something that is threatening,"
and arrested Peterson, Hurley said yesterday.
Peterson is still serving a two-year pro-
bation that was part of his sentence for the
baby's death. It was unclear whether the
arrest would affect his probation status.
He had permission from New Jersey authori-
ties to leave the state to attend the game, and he
had no curfew, said Beth Welch, spokeswoman
for the Delaware Department of Corrections.
She said a decision would not be made until
the department receives a copy of the complaint
and a recommendation from Peterson's parole
officer, probably in a day or two. A misde-
meanor conviction would not necessarily mean
his probation would be revoked, she said.
"Up until now, he hasn't had the slightest
anything go wrong or anything be untoward,"
said Peterson's attorney, Russell Gioiella,
after the arraignment.
