Manny Ramirez Arrested For Domestic Abuse In Florida

Leaving the game instead of taking his 100-game suspension was in fact not the last time we would hear of former Dodger Manny Ramirez, unfortunately:

WESTON, Fla. -- Former World Series MVP Manny Ramirez was arrested and charged with battery Monday after a domestic dispute at his South Florida home, police said.

Ramirez, 39, and his wife were arguing in their bedroom when he slapped her face, causing her to hit her head on their bed's headboard, according to a police report. She told the deputy she was afraid the situation would escalate and called police.

Ramirez denied hitting his wife, according to the report, telling a deputy "he grabbed his wife by the shoulders and when he shrugged her, she hit her head."

Ramirez's wife, Juliana, had red swelling on her face and a small bruise on the back of her head, the police report said. She did not want medical treatment.

Why do I get the sinking feeling that this won't be the last we'll hear of Manny in the press? Ugh.
