Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Arias will be reinstated from administrative leave following a domestic violence arrest after Major League Baseball was unable to obtain security video of the incident.
The arrest occurred back in March after the 22-year-old pitcher pushed a woman to the ground at a Los Angeles mall.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías will be reinstated from administrative leave following a domestic-violence arrest after Major League Baseball did not obtain a security video that allegedly showed the incident, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.
MLB and the MLB Players Association agreed to place Urías on paid administrative leave pending the league’s review of the video, sources said. Mall officials in possession of the video declined to give it to MLB, and while the league could have pursued a seven-day extension of administrative leave, the union and Urías would not have consented and could have filed a grievance, per the jointly negotiated domestic-violence policy.
Everyone knows if you haven’t seen the video then it never happened. A paid administrative leave probably taught Urias a valuable lesson about putting his hands on women too.
Nothing to see here, just another professional athlete arrested for domestic violence with little to no consequences for his actions.
