Ramirez

By Evan Brunell

Manny Ramirez has been arrested in Florida and has been booked into custody, allegedly commiting a crime of battery on his wife, police announced according to the Associated Press.

Ramirez was removed from his Weston, Fla., home in handcuffs around 7 p.m. after he allegedly slapped his wife Juliana in an argument. She alleges she fell and hit her head on the bed's headboard, and then called police when she became afraid the situation would escalate. She later left the home after Ramirez was removed in a police car. He claims he did not hit her, that she hit her head when he shrugged her. The police say that the injuries sustained by Juliana are consistent with her story. She declined medical treatment.

TMZ has posted Ramirez's mug shot.

Ramirez retired suddenly in the spring after he tested positive for the second time for performance-enhancing drugs, which would have earned him a 100-game ban had he remained in the game. Instead, the 39-year-old left after collecting just one hit in 17 trips to the plate. Ramirez was one of baseball's best hitters in the 1990s and 2000s, beginning with Cleveland before winning two World Series rings with the Red Sox. After forcing himself out of town in the final year of his eight-year, $160 million deal with Boston, Ramirez landed in Los Angeles with the Dodgers until partway through 2010, when he finished the year up with the White Sox. It was with the Dodgers that Ramirez received his first suspension for performance-enhancing drugs after reportedly testing positive in a sealed 2003 test.  Ramirez hit 547 home runs in his career.

Report: Manny Ramirez arrested in Florida

No, the link didn't further your point  at all.  For it to be considered a battery call, there has to be some sor tof evidence of battery ie a mark on her face.  My apologies for considering this to be common sense.  I've read the law too, but read a lawyer's take and you'll see what I'm talking about, or you won't.  I really don't care either way.

Report: Manny Ramirez arrested in Florida



Here's exactly what you said.

In the state of Florida, if the police are called out on a domestic violence call, one of them is going to jail, no matter what?
Remember that? This is the second time I've had to post it now since you seem extremly confused and uninformed.  Now you're backtracking and saying this..

As long as she had some sort of mark on her, and she called the cops, one of em is goin to jail.

I read the State of Florida domestic battery laws and NOWHERE does it state that based on the call only, someone will be arrested and charged, which is what you originally claimed but have now backtracked on.

I don't need to be an attorney, aspire to be one or have lawyer friends to grasp the basic principles behind laws, which apparently you can't. Thanks Vinny for the link, it proved my point 100%.

 Not sure why I would need a law license to know a law, but perhaps you aspire to practice on day; you sure are enough of an asshat to be a lawyer. 

For your reading pleasure:

Um, know the law pal. State of Florida one of them is going to jail no matter what.
 
Experience with that pal? Dad in the pokey for slapping your mom around? Tell you what, why don't you go ahead and provide us all with proof where the State of Florida arrests folks with no evidence for a conviction. I'd love to see it. Oh and while you're at it, a copy of your law license and the phone number to the State of Florida Bar Association so I can call in a complaint about how dumb you are.

Report: Manny Ramirez arrested in Florida

In the state of Florida, if the police are called out on a domestic violence call, one of them is going to jail that night, no matter what.
Oh please dude, that has to be one of the dumbest posts I've seen in a long time. If there is no evidence of an assualt, then no one gets arrested you dope. What's the purpose? So the DA can press charges with absolutely no evidence? Riiiight, because thats what DA's like to do, waste tax payer money and funds prosecuting without a single grain of evidence, wasting his, the judges and all those involved time for absolutely nothing. Manny was arrested because upon investigation by the officers, there was enough physical evidence to warrant his arrest. Some of you are beyond naive.
