Rockies Shortstop Jose Reyes Arrested For Domestic Violence In Hawaii (Mugshot)
Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes may be one of the most well-liked guys in the clubhouse. Unfortunately he’s not very well-liked in his own house.
Sources say he and his wife, Katherine, were arguing in their hotel room at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, so hotel security called the police. Katherine told the responding officers that Reyes had pulled her off the bed, grabbed her by the throat, and slammed her against the sliding glass patio doors. She was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center with injuries to her neck, thigh, and wrist.
As you would expect, the Colorado Rockies have issued a statement:

Reyes, a former All-Star and NL batting champion, spent the beginning of his career with the Mets before signing with the Marlins as a free agent. They then turned around and traded Reyes to the Blue Jays, who traded him to the Rockies in a blockbuster deal this past July that landed Troy Tulowitzki north of the border.
Now Reyes could become the first player subjected to Major League Baseball’s new domestic violence policy, instituted by the league and the players association this past August. The policy allows Commissioner Rob Manfred to “issue the discipline he believes is appropriate in light of the severity of the conduct. The Commissioner’s authority to discipline is not dependent on whether the player is convicted or pleads guilty to a crime.”
Stay tuned. This sad story is not over yet.
