Minnesota Twins’ Miguel Sano Arrested After Incident With Police
Reports are indicating that the third baseman was arrested after an incident with police in the Dominican Republic.
According to the USA Today, Sano allegedly ran over a police officer while leaving the nightclub Riversay in San Pedro de Macoris, leaving the officer with a broken leg. Sano was driving a vehicle without a license plate and without an ID.
A Minnesota Twins spokesman released a statement saying they were aware of the situation with Sano in the Dominican Republic.
"The Minnesota Twins have been made aware of a situation involving Miguel Sano recently in the Dominican Republic. The facts of the incident are not completely available right now but the club is in the process of gathering as much information as possible."
The 25-year-old had a tough season with the Twins, hitting just .199 with 13 home runs and 41 RBI. He returned to his native country after the Twins season ended last week.
