Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Former Red Sox/Dodgers/Indians left fielder/enigma Manny Ramirez was arrested in Weston, Florida earlier this evening on battery charges after a domestic dispute, the Miami Herald reported.

Police said Ramirez was arguing with his wife when he slapped her, at which point she hit her head on the headboard of their bed. Ramirez's wife then phoned the cops because she feared the situation might escalate, the AP writes.


Ramirez apparently said he did not hit his wife, and that her injuries came from her hitting her head "after he 'shrugged' her."

According to the Herald, Ramirez was still in custody at the Broward Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale as of late Monday night. Ramirez retired from the Rays in April after a positive drug test. More as it comes in.
