Manny Ramirez was arrested for allegedly slapping his wife during a dispute at their South Florida home. Who won the dispute is still unknown.
The former MLB star was released from the Broward County Jail on $2,500 bail, which is about .0005% of his net worth. He was charged with domestic battery charge. Broward Circuit Judge Jon Hurley ordered that he have no direct contact with his wife… since that’s exactly what the problem was: contact with his wife.
Officials say 39-year-old Manny Ramirez was arguing with his wife, Juliana, when he slapped her face, causing her to hit her head on their bed’s headboard.
Manny hasn’t had many opportunities to hit since he retired in April from the Tampa Bay Rays after he tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance. It makes sense that now that the Rays are making the divisional race interesting, the former World Series MVP is upset. I mean, innocent until proven guilty! Just cause he was a slugger, doesn’t mean he still is!!!
Authorities say Ramirez denied hitting his wife, but couldn’t really tell since his Spanglish is difficult to understand.
