FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – Former Major League Baseball MVP Manny Ramirez has been arrested after an incident at his Weston home Monday night.
Ramirez, 39, was processed at the Davie jail and charged with one count of battery, stemming from a domestic violence incident at the home.
According to the police report, Ramirez’s wife Juliana called authorities stating that her husband hit her with an open hand on the left side of her face, causing her hit her head on the headboard of the bed.
Ramirez allegedly admitted to responding officers that he and his wife had an argument, but said he grabbed her by the shoulders and when he shrugged her, she hit her head.
Juliana Ramirez reportedly refused medical attention at the scene.
Ramirez retired from baseball in April of 2011 following a failed drug test, which would have rendered a 100 game suspension.
