Brave footballer Marcel Ozona was arrested Saturday on charges of aggravated assault with suffocation and domestic violence, according to several reasons. Reports.
Ozuna, 30, has been arrested by Sandy Springs Police and held without bond in Fulton County Jail. Sandy Springs is a city located about 16 miles north of Atlanta in Fulton County.
The Braves, who is in New York to attend a series with Mets, issued a statement regarding the arrest:
“We learned of the arrest of Marcel Ozona earlier this evening and immediately informed the commissioner’s office. Braves fully supports Major League Baseball’s policy on domestic violence which fully affirms that our society cannot and will not tolerate domestic violence in any way. Until the investigation is complete, We will not have any further comment and all inquiries on this matter should be referred to the Commissioner’s office.
to me ESPN’s Jeff Bassan, MLB is expected to conduct an investigation into Ozuna, and “may suspend it under the league policy jointly negotiated with the MLB Players Association.”
Ozona Previously Out of the Atlanta lineup For six weeks with broken fingers. Given His arrest It might be fair to expect not to see all stars twice again in 2021 at the very least.
Major League Baseball was somewhat aggressive in disciplining For domestic violence, even in cases where no charges have been filed, as was the case with Yankees player Domingo German, who recently finished 81 game ban That included the whole last season. Former Rangers are closer Sam Dyson is forbidden All this season in another case where he was not arrested.
Atlanta’s statement on the arrest was typical, but what can the team really say? The question, however, is how do the team and its players react when the investigation is complete and sanction the MLB and / or the legal system Ozona. In February, Yankees’ Zach Britton impressed Disclosed About Germain’s impending comeback, saying, “Sometimes you can’t control who your team-mates are and that’s the situation. I don’t agree with what he did. I don’t.” I think it has no place in the game or off the field or at all. “
What we will learn about the continued development of baseball in this region is on the way.
Ozona, who has been playing in the league since 2013 (Marlins, Cardinals and Braves), signed a four-year contract worth $ 65 million to stay in Atlanta this off-season and was a two-time All-Star superstar in Miami. It took sixth place in the NL MVP vote last year.
