APNewsBreak: Jose Reyes’ domestic abuse case to be dropped


HONOLULU (AP) — Maui prosecutors are moving to dismiss a domestic abuse charge against suspended Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Kerry Glen said Wednesday she’s dropping the case because Reyes’ wife isn’t cooperating.

Reyes was scheduled to go to trial April 4. He pleaded not guilty to abusing a family or household member.

The former New York Mets shortstop was arrested Oct. 31 at the Wailea Four Seasons Resort. According to a recording of a 911 call released by police, a hotel security guard reported the woman had injuries to her leg and scratches on her neck.

Reyes was released after posting $1,000 bail and was ordered to stay away from his wife for three days.

He was placed on paid leave under Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy pending completion of the criminal proceedings.
