Manny Ramirez arrested

Former MLB All-Star Manny Ramirez was arrested Monday by Weston, Florida police.

According to TMZ, Ramirez was arrested for alleged domestic violence. The outlet, citing two unnamed witnesses, reported he and his wife were involved in an altercation.

Ramirez, 39, retired in April after violating baseball's drug program for a second time. He would have faced a 100-game suspension, and played in just five games for the Rays this season before retiring.

The slugger batted .312 with 555 homers, a .411 on-base percentage and 1,831 RBI over 19 seasons, mostly with Cleveland and Boston. He also played for the Dodgers, White Sox and Rays.

The 12-time All-Star selection was the MVP of the 2004 World Series, when he helped the Red Sox sweep the Cardinals. He also won a title with Boston in 2007.
