According to the Associated Press, former standout Braves outfielder, Andruw Jones, was arrested early Tuesday morning on a battery charge. The dispute which lead to the arrest was reportedly between Jones and his wife.
Gwinnett County Detention Center records say Jones was booked into the jail around 3:45 a.m. and had been released on $2,400 bond by 11 a.m.
Once one of the premier players in the big leagues, Jones broke into the majors with the Atlanta Braves in 1996 and won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves from 1998-07 as their center fielder. He has 434 career home runs over the span of 17 seasons in the majors.
If you wonder what Jones has been up to recently, he recently signed a $3.5 million, one-year contract with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan’s Pacific League.
