Howard Bryant, an ESPN baseball writer and the author of three books, was arrested Saturday in Buckland, Massachusetts, and charged with “domestic assault and battery, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.”
According to The Republican, Bryant was outside of a pizza joint when the incident went down.
Five witnesses gave statements saying they saw a man arguing with a woman, police said. They said he choked her and pushed her into a car, Tudryn said.
When police arrived, he argued with them and struck Trooper Brian Doak in the chest with his elbow, Tudryn said. Doak was not injured.
Police claim it took them three minutes to subdue Bryant. ESPN gave the paper no comment, and nor did Bryant. More tomorrow, or as the story develops. [via Bruce Allen]
