Rockies 'concerned' after learning shortstop Jose Reyes arrested on Maui for assaulting wife
MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Major League Baseball player Jose Reyes, the shortstop for the Colorado Rockies, was arrested and charged on Halloween after allegedly assaulting his wife in their Maui hotel room.
Maui police said Reyes posted $1,000 bail, and was told not to have any contact with his wife, Katherine, for three days.
The assault happened at the couple's Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea hotel room about 2:30 p.m.
His wife told responding officers that Reyes grabbed her off the bed and shoved her. Sources say she also told police that he grabbed her throat and shoved her into the sliding glass balcony door.
Security called police and Reyes was arrested for abuse of a family or household member.
Reyes' wife told police she had injuries to her thigh, neck, and wrist. She was taken to the Maui Memorial Medical Center.
Reyes, 32, has previously played for the New York Mets, Miami Marlins, and the Toronto Blue Jays. He was the National League batting champion in 2011 and is the New York Mets' all-time leader in triples and stolen bases.
On Tuesday, the Colorado Rockies said on Twitter that "we are extremely disappointed and concerned to learn of the allegations involving Reyes."
Reyes has not commented publicly on the allegations. After the allegations surfaced, he made his Instagram account private.
