Last seen in this space attempting to extract a measure of revenge from his former paymasters at Seton Hall, Pirates ex-coach Bobby Gonzalez was charged with shoplifting and criminal mischief yesterday by Milburn, NJ police. Gonzalez is accused of stealing a men’s satchel from the Polo Ralph Lauren shop at the Short Hills Mall last week.
