If you say that you are more familiar with Elijah Dukes because of his play on a baseball diamond and not because of his jagoff behavior, you are lying. The former Washington National and Tampa Bay Ray is a serial knucklehead, and the latest headlines didn’t disappoint.
According to the St. Petersburg Times, Dukes was arrested on Wednesday night for slapping his pregnant ex-girlfriend in the face. In Dukes’ defense however, it was during an argument.
The two had been staying in hotels for the past few days and were at the East Lake Inn in Tampa (we checked…it does not have a pool). He was arrested there without incident.
But, true to his style, Dukes double dipped a bit. He was also arrested on charges of contempt of court and driving with a suspended license.
The girl, Mountrail Mounshay Mack, was not seriously harmed, but the battery charge on Dukes is a felony because she is five months pregnant.
