Former Mets reliever Rodriguez arrested last month at his home

Posted: Updated:

A prosecutor says Former New York Mets and current Milwaukee Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez was arrested last month on a domestic violence complaint involving his girlfriend.

Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel said in an email that Rodriguez has not been charged and that any possible charges would be misdemeanors.

Schimel says deputies arrested Rodriguez at his Town of Wales home early September 18 after responding to a 911 call from his girlfriend, with whom he lives and has a child.

Rodriguez was booked and released on bond.

The prosecutor says Rodriguez is accused of "physical abuse" but couldn't comment further because charges haven't been filed.

A spokesman for the club said in an email it would be premature to comment since charges haven't been filed.

As a member of the New York Mets, Rodriguez pleaded guilty in 2010 to attempted assault after allegedly attacking his girlfriend's father. He was sent to anger management classes.

    Just one season of hits in high school football may alter brain

    Even among high school football players who've never had a concussion, a small preliminary study suggests that changes can still occur to their brains within the course of a single season.
