Jose Reyes of Colorado Rockies pleads not guilty to domestic violence
Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested on Oct. 31 in Maui after allegedly grabbing his wife Katherine on the throat and pushing her into a glass door, Maui County Police Department said. He was arrested after security at the hotel they were staying at called the authorities.
Reyes posted a $1,000 bail and received a citation and was not allowed to speak with his wife for a few days. Reyes’ attorney pleaded not guilty to domestic abuse on his behalf at his Nov. 24 court hearing. The next court date is scheduled for Jan. 14 for a pretrial hearing.
Reyes’ wife was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center after sustaining injuries on her neck, wrist, and thigh, according to reports.
Reyes’ case will be handled under the new Major League Baseball union’s new domestic violence policy, which was just implemented this last August.
