Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez's case continued to September 3

CLEVELAND - Indians pitcher Chris Perez will next appear in court in September.

Perez and his wife Melanie were scheduled for a pretrial hearing Tuesday morning at Rocky River Municipal Court, where the case was continued until Sept. 3.

Chris and Melanie Perez were each charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance after a search warrant was served at their Rocky River home in June.

Attorneys said Tuesday they will release some of the sealed information from the search.

The Indians reliever admitted to authorities that marijuana found inside the home was for his personal use.
