Andruw Jones Charged With Battery After Alleged Domestic DisputeS

There aren't many specific details yet known, but the AP is reporting that former major leaguer Andruw Jones started his Christmas Day in jail after he was arrested on a battery charge early this morning in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth. Seems police were called to respond to a domestic dispute between Jones and his wife around 1:30 a.m. What triggered the alleged dispute and what happened is not known. Jones, who earlier this month signed a one-year contract to play in Japan, was booked at 3:45 a.m. and released around 11 a.m. after posting $2,400 bond. That's his mugshot right there, courtesy of the Gwinnett County (Ga.) sheriff's office.
