Former Major League Baseball player Andruw Jones has been charged with battery stemming from a domestic disturbance he had with his wife, Nicole Jones, on Christmas day in suburban Atlanta. Reports say Jones was intoxicated and attempted to drag his wife down a flight of stairs while screaming threats at her. Police responded to the call at around 1:30 in the morning and took Jones into custody shortly after.
Officers on the scene say they discovered bruises on Nicole Jones' neck which were photographed and marked as evidence in this matter. Police say Andruw seemed confused about the situation due to his level of intoxication and ultimately placed him under arrest.
The police records for the Gwinnett County Detention Center state that Jones was booked into the jail at 3:45 a.m. He was released a few hours later on $2,400 bond. It has yet to be determined if Jones has an attorney or not.
