After spending Monday night in the Broward County Jail, Manny Ramirez was released on $2,500 bail Tuesday.

He declined to speak about the incident that left wife Juliana with a swollen face and a bruise on the back of her head as he left the jail alone.

“No thanks,” Ramirez said when asked for comment. “Let me see, where’s my family?”

According to The Associated Press, Ramirez then hopped into a white Cadillac Escalade driven by his sister and was whisked away.

Ramirez’s sister did speak from the vehicle briefly before Manny arrived, though she declined to give her name.

“He’s my brother; we love him no matter what. He’s an amazing guy and we love him no matter what,” she said before rolling up the window.

At a brief court appearance Tuesday, Ramirez was ordered to have no direct contact with his wife by County Judge John Hurley. There’s no word yet on the timing of his next court appearance.  He faces up to a year in jail if convicted of misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

    I put the chances that Manny spends another night in prison at about 0%. Not saying I like it, but thats just the way it is.

      More of a guava – one that was never bagged before it began to get ripe.
