Aroldis Chapman Allegedly Fired Gunshots, 'Choked' Girlfriend After Argument

Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 08 Dec 2015

The baseball world thought the Cincinnati Reds had traded closer Aroldis Chapman to the Los Angeles Dodgers early Monday, but an alleged domestic violence incident reportedly halted the deal.According to Tim Brown and Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Chapman "allegedly fired eight gunshots in the garage of his Miami-area home following an October argument with his girlfriend in which she told police he 'choked' her and pushed her against a wall, according to police reports obtained by Yahoo Sports."The argument apparently started when Chapman's girlfriend found something on his cellphone. More than 12 police officers arrived at his house after the incident allegedly occurred.According to the police report, the closer "told police he used his index and middle fingers and 'poked his girlfriend on the left shoulder and told her not to talk to him like that,'" per Brown and Passan.Chapman "admitted to firing eight shots with a handgun, seven of which went into a concrete wall inside his garage and the eighth of which went through a window into an open field."No one was arrested following police interviews of multiple people "due to conflicting stories and a lack of cooperation from all parties involved," per the report cited by Brown and Passan.Chapman's attorney, Jay Reisinger, offered a statement, per Brown and Passan: "I've reviewed the facts as portrayed. On behalf of Mr. Chapman, we vehemently deny the allegations as stated. Beyond that, we have no further comment at this time."Initial reports had Cincinnati trading Chapman to Los Angeles on Monday, but Brown and Passan reported "word of the incident held up the deal." Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports confirmed their report and weighed in:Chapman is a fastball specialist who has pitched for the Reds the past six seasons. He is a four-time All-Star with a 2.17 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 546 strikeouts over 319 career innings.Major League Baseball will reportedly investigate the incident under its new domestic violence policy. Brown and Passan pointed out "a violator could be subject to suspension or fine at the discretion of the commissioner" as part of that policy.
