Manny Ramirez is facing domestic violence charges stemming from an incident that took place earlier this month involving his wife. The athlete allegedly slapped Juliana Ramirez in the face, sending her head into the headboard of their bed. The couple has two small children together.
The Broward State Attorney's Office has formally charged the former Boston Red Sox and L.A. Dodgers player with misdemeanor domestic violence and battery, according to TMZ.
If the allegations are true, Juliana should start looking for a good divorce attorney because no woman deserves that type of treatment. To be fair, if the allegations are false, she owes Manny Ramirez more than a huge apology because he is facing very serious charges.
The couple lives in Florida where a local court issued a no contact order against Manny Ramirez in mid-September. The baseball player is not permitted to have any contact with his spouse until further notice, which is probably a good idea given the circumstances.
