Oakland, CA — A man who threw a cup of beer on New York Yankees player Jason Giambi has been charged with misdemeanor battery.
A prosecutor in the Alameda County District Attorney´s Office says that Eric Anduri is set to be arraigned June 14th.

He said after the incident that he wasn´t interested in pursuing charges.
But prosecutors, saying they have enough witnesses, decided to go ahead with the charges.
If convicted, Anduri could face a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a two-thousand dollar fine.
The 30-year-old Anduri is the son of Lafayette Mayor Carl Anduri.
