Man Who Attacked White Sox Coach Arrested

CHICAGO - A man serving probation for running onto the field at a Chicago White Sox game and attacking a coach was arrested for allegedly breaking
into a car, police said.
William Ligue Jr., 35, was arrested about 2:30 a.m. Thursday after a brief chase, police Detective Hollis Dorrough said. He was charged with felony
burglary to a vehicle, attempted fleeing and eluding, driving without insurance and speeding.
Prosecutors on Friday asked a judge to revoke Ligue's earlier sentence of 2 1/2 years probation and send him to jail for as long as five years, said
Marcy Jensen, a spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office.
Bond was set at $25,000 on the burglary charge, Jensen said. A $25,000 bond also was set on the alleged probation violation.
Prosecutors had sought five years in prison for the September 2002 attack on Kansas City Royals first-base coach Tom Gamboa, who suffered a loss of
hearing. Ligue's 15-year-old son, who also was involved in the beating, was sentenced to five years' probation.
Ligue was represented in court by a public defender who did not immediately respond to a voice mail message Friday afternoon.
After the hearing, Ligue's girlfriend, Kelly Chomer, also was arrested. She is suspected of taking part in the break-in, authorities said.
Ligue's probation violation hearing is scheduled Monday.
