Rockies SS Jose Reyes pleads not guilty to domestic abuse
Wednesday November 25th, 2015

Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes has entered a plea of not guilty to domestic abuse charges for allegedly having a physical altercation with his wife last month, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Reyes was arrested on Oct. 31 at a Hawaii resort after reportedly grabbing his wife and shoving her into a sliding glass door at the Maui Four Seasons Resort.

Police released the 911 call for the incident, in which a hotel security guard is heard saying the woman had injuries to her left leg and scratches on her neck, the AP reports.

Reyes, 32, was charged with abuse of a family or household member, and was released on a $1,000 bail.

The shortstop was traded to the Rockies from the Toronto Blue Jays in July, and has two years and $44 million remaining on the six-year, $106 million contract he originally signed with the Miami Marlins in 2012.

Reyes did not attend the arraignment in Maui, leaving defense attorney David Sereno to enter the plea for him. His next court date is on Jan. 14 for a pretrial hearing.
