Re: Rosebud - Rosie Casals

Wasn't sure if this should go in 1977 or here-but here goes.

From an AP wire story: May 24,1977

Rosie Beats Foe to Punch

Tennis star Rosie Casals was arrested on an assualt charge after a minor automobile accident at San Francisco International Airport.

San Mateo sherriff Ricahrd Platt said that Casals, 28, and companion Sheri Barman, also 28, were taken into custody after Friday's incident. Miss Casals was released on her own recognicance. Miss Barman was released after posting $1,000 bail.

According to Platt, the two women had parked at the airport parking lot in front of a car driven by Glen Wolff, 30, of San Francisco. Wolff's car alledgedly brushed the fender of Miss Casals' car, according to Platt.

Miss Casals jumped out of her car, pulled Mr. Wolff out of his car, and began punching him and scratching his face, Platt said. An airport security officer, Bernard Sullivan, tried to break up the altercation and Miss Barman struck him, the deputy said.
