3D --June 29,1975 Sunday Ga*eUe-Mail Charleston, West Virgin!* Detroit's Houk Released After Charge of Assault BALTIMORE (AP) - Ralph Hook, the Detroit Tigers manager known for his temperamental nature on the baseball diamond, was released on his own recognizance by a district court commissioner Saturday after being formally charged with one count of assault. Houk, who allegedly vented his anger at a Baltimore Evening Sun sportswriter by slapping him about the head Friday night, was ordered to appear in state district court here Sept. 24 during his club's next road trip to Baltimore. The Detroit manager was questioned by police about the incident Saturday after he suddenly appeared at the Northern District headquarters to answer a warrant for his arrest, a spokesman said. Dennis Hill, the police spokesman, said Houk was ushered before the court commissioner after questioning, and formally charged with one count of assault. The arrest warrant had been issued early Saturday after Phil Hersh, a sportswriter for the Baltimore Evening Sun, filed a complaint detailing the manager's alleged assault. Houk has refused any comment on the incident, and was allowed by police to use ia normally-locked door to I avoid reporters and photographers who had gathered at the station. Efforts to contact the Detroit manager later proved futile, but Houk was expected to be on hand Saturday night at Memorial Stadium when the Tigers faced the Baltimore Orioles. Houk Houk was accompanied to the station by two other men, but police refused to identify them other than to say neither was an attorney. Hersh alleged in his complaint that Houk began berating him before Friday night's game about a story that he had written saying the Detroit manager told bis club "the situation is hopeless but you can still play respectably." "I started to duck out the closest door when Houk started slapping me saying I wasn't going through there," Hersh said, adding that the manager'struck him several more times about the face before a Tigers player interceded. Hersh swore out the assault complaint Friday, and early Saturday filed for the arrest warrant. "I want to see future baseball writers protected from this kind of treatment," Hersh said.
