Andruw Jones, former star center fielder for the Atlanta Braves who played in the Major Leagues with the New York Yankees , was free on bond after being arrested in suburban Atlanta early Tuesday on a battery charge, according to jail records.
Around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to a call for a domestic dispute between Jones and his wife in Duluth.
Following the arrest, Jones was eventually booked into the county jail around 3:45. He was released on $2,400 bond by 11 a.m.
After spending the 2012 season with the New York Yankees, Jones signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan’s Pacific League earlier this offseason.
