Thursday, August 12, 2010

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was charged with third-degree assault and released without bail from a Queens courtroom today.

He was also ordered to stay away from his father-in-law, who he allegedly assaulted at a family lounge at CitiField following a game.

The Mets suspended Rodriguez for two days. He was also placed on the restricted list and removed from the team's active roster.

In a statement, Mets Chief Operating Officer Jeff Wilpon says the organization is "very disappointed" with Rodriguez's "inappropriate behavior."
