Updated: Aug 21, 2018

The Washington Post published an article today in which it outlined the of Baltimore Orioles' pitcher Sidney Ponson's "legal troubles" in Aruba, stating that "the charges against Ponson who must also make a sizable donation to charity and perform 80 hours of community service will be dropped once a settlement is reached." The charges stemmed from an altercation on an Aruban beach on Christmas Day. The article outlined the potential implications of a criminal conviction on Sidney Ponson, an Aruban citizen, including the impact such a conviction would have on his obtaining a work visa to play baseball in the United States. The article discussed how ZP&W Sports & Entertainment, LLC agent Scott Shapiro assisted with the case on immigration issues.
