Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena was released from all charges in Mexico ahead of a scheduled hearing on Thursday, two days after an alleged domestic violence incident with his ex-wife, ESPN reported.
Arozarena was cleared by Yucatan police after reaching a deal with the woman, with whom he has a daughter, who decided against taking legal action against the Rays’ postseason hero.
Report: Randy Arozarena incident escalated
Arozarena was reportedly arrested and detained in Merida, a city in the state of Yucatan, after the dispute in which he allegedly attempted to forcibly take his daughter without permission. According to reports, the incident escalated to where Arozarena assaulted the mother and the mother’s father.
According to the Yucatan Ahora!, Arozarena brought gifts to the house. But soon thereafter, shouting prompted neighbors to arrive to support the girl’s mother and they blocked Arozarena’s car to prevent him from leaving before police arrived.
Arozarena, 25, reportedly got married on Nov. 7 to a different woman and also has a child with her.
Arozarena had a postseason for the ages as he set records for homers (10) and hits (29). He batted .377 over 20 games while helping the Rays reach the World Series, where they lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in six games.
