| by Alex Groberman

Former MLB All-Star Andruw Jones was arrested early Tuesday morning on a battery charge stemming from a domestic dispute. He was ultimately released on bond a few hours later.

According to the New York Daily News, police responded to a call from Jones’ wife, Duluth, at 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday. He was arrested, booked and processed just before 4:00 a.m. By 11:00 a.m. he was out on a $2,400 bond.

Over the span of his 16 years Jones played for the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. He was at his most successful while playing in Atlanta – racking up five All-Star appearances, 10 Golden Glove nods and a number of hitting awards.  

Jones currently plays for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Nippon Professional Baseball's Pacific League. He signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the ballclub just three weeks ago.
