NEW YORK (AP) – New York Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez is in custody after what police called a “physical assault” on his father-in-law at Citi Field.
Police say Rodriguez will be charged with third-degree assault. Police say the pitcher hasn’t been arrested.
Police say the incident occurred after the Mets’ 6-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. Police say Rodriguez’s father-in-law is in the hospital with a scrape on his face and a bump on his head.
The Mets confirmed there was an incident between Rodriguez and his family, and referred all questions to the police.
This was at least the second such kind of incident this year for K-Rod. Is it just me or are signs increasingly pointing to him being a thug? Does he need to go through anger management like Carlos Zambrano? It seems to have worked for him so far.
