Red Sox Steven Wright Arrested for Domestic Violence; He Claims He & His Wife Were Just Talking

You probably won’t hear much about this because it is MLB.

I find it hard to believe that just talking loudly would result in an arrest, but that is the story Wright is going with according to TMZ.

NBC Sports Boston reports that the starting righty got busted Friday at his home in Tennessee for an incident involving his wife, which resulted in him being arrested and booked for domestic assault.

His lawyer released a statement from the Wright family saying … “On Friday night, Steven was arrested at our home following a verbal argument, and the police charged him with domestic assault.”

The statement goes on … “Although he said things he deeply regrets, he did not raise his hand at anyone during the incident, and the situation was purely emotional. We are working together as a family … and we ask that you respect our privacy as we do so.”
