    Louise Meanwell has been arrested for allegedly harassing and stalking Yankee General Manager Brian Cashman, contact that included hundreds of emails and sometimes more than 10 calls and texts in one night. Andrew Siff reports.

    A woman charged with extorting $6,000 from Yankees general manager Brian Cashman may be about to find out what a grand jury thinks of the case.

    Louise Meanwell is scheduled to be in a Manhattan court Wednesday to learn whether she's been indicted. She also goes by the name Louise Neathway. Her lawyer didn't immediately return a call this week. 

    Meanwell is being held on $300,000 bond on grand larceny, stalking and other charges. She denies allegations of threatening to damage Cashman's reputation to get him to pay her. 

    Meanwell has a history of arrests on similar charges. A Manhattan judge last month reinstated one of those cases, a 2010 harassment allegation. It had been on track to be dismissed if she avoided rearrest.

    Meanwell is a British native.
