Former Atlanta Braves star Andruw Jones was arrested in Atlanta early Christmas morning and charged with domestic battery, according to jail records obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The AJC reports that police responded to a domestic dispute call at the home of Jones and his wife, Nicole Derick-Jones, in Duluth, a suburb north of Atlanta.
Jones, 35, was booked into the jail around 3:45 a.m. and released on $2,400 bond by 11 a.m. Tuesday.
In 17 seasons as a center fielder for the Braves, Jones won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves and had 434 career home runs.
Earlier this month Jones signed a $3.5 million, one-year contract to play in Japan’s Pacific League.
Nicole Jones teamed up with Jermaine Dupri’s former personal assistant, Chantel Watkins, to launch the HONESTY Jewelry line in 2009, after So So Def went belly up and Watkins was let go along with other longterm staffers.
