On Tuesday, Jose Reyes’ attorney entered a plea of not guilty to the domestic abuse charge he was arrested for back in October. The Colorado Rockies shortstop was arrested on Halloween at a Hawaii resort for an argument with his wife that allegedly turned physical.
Reyes allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into the glass balcony door of the hotel where they were staying while on vacation in Hawaii. Security was called and Reyes was arrested. He was later released on $1,000 bail. Reyes’ wife said she suffered injuries to her thigh, neck, and wrist.
The Maui County deputy prosecuting attorney told Kerry Glen of the New York Daily News that Jose Reyes was not present for his arraignment and that his next court date is scheduled for Jan. 14, 2016.
The MLB is also investigating the charges and Reyes could face additional discipline from the league.
Jose Reyes was acquired by the Rockies back in July.
