Andruw Jones was arrested early Christmas morning on a battery charge.
Nicole Jones, the wife of the former Atlanta Braves center fielder, said her husband dragged her down a staircase, grabbed her neck, and said he wanted to kill her.
Andruw Jones was heavily intoxicated, allowing his wife to push him away and escape. The fight occurred at approximately 1:30 A.M. on Tuesday.
Police officers said Andruw Jones appeared to be confused when confronted by police in his bedroom.
"Andruw did not respond and it appeared as though he was passed out in his clothes," an officer wrote in his report. "I touched Andruw on the arm and said 'Gwinnett County police, Andruw, we need to speak with you.' Andruw woke up and appeared dazed. He appeared heavily intoxicated and confused about why officers were standing in his bedroom."
Jones was released on a $2,400 bond by 11:00 A.M. on Christmas morning.Tags: Andruw Jones, Atlanta, Atlanta Braves, MLB
