According to CBS 58 in Milwaukee, Francisco Rodriguez was arrested in September at his home in Wisconsin following an alleged domestic violence incident.

The alleged incident involved his girlfriend and occurred on September 17. Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel confirmed that an arrest was made, but the case is still under review and no charges have been filed. Brewers vice president of communications Tyler Barnes acknowledged that the team is aware of the report, but offered no further comment.

Rodriguez was previously arrested┬áin August of 2010 for assaulting his girlfriend’s father in the family room at Citi Field back when he was a member of the Mets.

    After smacking his girlfriends father, who in Gods name would have expected this, such an easy going guy. Maybe anger management is on the horizon here, or better yet some jail time.

    Seems like K-Rod is a bit of a D-bag.

      I always thought his nickname should have F-Rod.

      Pronounced, “Fraud.”

    Its amazing he’s been in the league so long and he’s only 30. The guy is complete headcase and will never closer again. He may get a role as reliever because of his resume. Wasted talent is so pathetic.

    IF he is judged guilty, his girlfriend should hire Gloria Allred
    and make sure he pays, just like he did in NY. He needs to understand that he has to take that woman beating sh*t back where he came from, because that sh*t aint cool here!

    Well he sucked from April through September so his performance this year had nothing to do with this.

    The sad thing is he’ll probably be back in the game at some point. Because for some reason this isn’t considered as bad as betting on baseball.
