Manny Ramirez Arrested On Domestic Battery Charges

Via Deadspin:

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 last played in five games for the Tampa Bay Rays in April, when he tested positive for a banned substance for the second time. Facing a 100-game suspension, the 12-time All-Star decided to retire after playing in 19 seasons.

Whether he was cutting the ball off in the outfield, making various trips to the Green Monster during games, or refusing to play against the Yankees, Ramirez knew how to make headlines during his playing career. Unfortunately, this post-playing news is much more serious.

The most interesting thing about Manny Ramirez, however, will always be just how good he was. He was a high school legend in New York City, accomplishing legendary feats like hitting a one-handed home run over 400 feet. He dominated the Major Leagues as well, hitting 555 home runs and compiling an outstanding .996 OPS.
