Nightclub Brawl: Vladimir Guerrero Arrested
April 11, 2012 by staff
Nightclub Brawl: Vladimir Guerrero Arrested, Vladimir Guerrero, who won the 2004 American League MVP with the Angels, has fallen on hard times of late.
The out-of-work slugger was arrested in his home country of the Dominican Republic on Tuesday after police accused him of assaulting an officer following a brawl at a nightclub, according to media reports. The AP reported that Guerrero turned himself in but denied attacking anyone.
Dominican Today quoted a police official who said Guerrero, his brother Wilton and others were involved in the fight at the El Punto disco in the city of Bani. “No one is above the law,” the official said. “Guerrero and the others will be charged for the incident which left one injured.”
Rafael Rojas, who covers the Rockies for the blog Purple Row, tweeted: “According to several reports out of the DR, Guerrero was involved in an all-night police chase after he assaulted a police car.” And later: “Guerrero will be charged of physical and verbal assault to an authority. He is currently at a police precinct in Ban?.”
After a so-so year with the Baltimore Orioles last season, Guerrero, 37, spent spring in the Dominican hoping to catch on with a major league team. He hit .290 with the O’s but had just 13 home runs in 145 games, his lowest total since his second year in the majors, when he hit 11 homers in 90 games.
Guerrero became a star with the Montreal Expos, and when he signed with the Angels in 2004, it was the biggest free-agent acquisition in the team’s history until Albert Pujols left the St. Louis Cardinals last December. In his first season with the Angels, Guerrero hit .337 with 39 homers and 126 RBI and won the AL MVP award, easily outpointing second-place Gary Sheffield of the Yankees.
