NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez is in custody after what police called a “physical assault” on his father-in-law at Citi Field.
Police say Rodriguez will be charged with third-degree assault. Police say the pitcher hasn’t been arrested.
Police say the incident occurred after the Mets’ 6-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. Police say Rodriguez’s father-in-law is in the hospital with a scrape on his face and a bump on his head.
The Mets confirmed there was an incident between Rodriguez and his family, and referred all questions to the police.
