Manny Ramirez was arrested Monday after a domestic dispute at his South Florida home and charged with battery according to the AP report.
Ramirez and his wife were arguing in their bedroom when he slapped her face, causing her to hit her head on their bed’s headboard. 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 she hit her head after he “shrugged” her. Ramirez’s wife had injuries consistent with her story, but did not want medical treatment.
