Report: Jose Reyes arrested for domestic abuse


Former Miami Marlins’ shortstop Jose Reyes has been arrested on charges of domestic abuse in Maui, Hawaii.

Reyes, well-known for his time with the Mets. He signed with the Miami Marlins during their massive free agency spurge, earning a 7-year $106 million contract.

He was apart of the blockbuster trade that sent Reyes among other Marlins stars, to Toronto for Henderson Alvarez, Jeff Mathis and prospects.

Toronto flipped Jose Reyes to the Rockies right before the MLB trade deadline, in part of the trade that sent Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto.

The MLB put out a new domestic abuse policy earlier this year saying, stating that players who commit a domestic violence crime can and will be suspended without pay.

The Rockies were known to be shopping Reyes during the off-season, with the Mets being a potential suitor.
