Colorado Rockies Shortstop Jose Reyes Arrested For Domestic Abuse


According to multiple reports, Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes has been arrested in Hawaii for domestic abuse.

This does not bode well for Reyes’, being that domestic abuse is a touchy subject and just down right not acceptable in any way, shape or form. We have all seen the backlash on Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy, seeing the images of his ex-girlfriend go viral, revealing disturbing photos that are NSFW.

According to Chelsea Davis of Hawaii News Now, Reyes was arrested on Halloween night (Oct. 31) after “allegedly assaulting his wife” in a Maui hotel room.

We will have to see what kind of action the Rockies’ will take on this matter. The Colorado Rockies offered a statement via Twitter late Monday night.
