Colorado Rockies shortstop arrested for allegedly assaulting wife

Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested on Halloween night after being accused of grabbing his wife by the throat and shoving her into a sliding glass door.

The alleged assault reportedly took place at the Four Seasons Resort on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

According to reports, hotel security called police, and Reyes was arrested. His wife, Katherine Ramirez, sustained injuries to her thigh, wrist and neck.

Reyes was released on bail.

The Rockies released a statement Monday night that read, “We were extremely disappointed and concerned to learn of the allegations involving Jose Reyes. We continue to gather information and will address this matter appropriately, in accordance with Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assalt and Child Abuse Policy.”

Major League Baseball and the Players’ Association agreed on the domestic-violence policy in August. Commissioner Rob Manfred will be free to conduct his own investigation and not wait for the charges to play out in court.

Baseball’s new policy states that there is no minimum or maximum penalty set for instances of domestic violence.
