Former MLB Player Convicted Of Domestic Violence. The Details Are Horrifying
Former Red Sox pitcher Matt Mantei may be out of the MLB but that’s not his biggest problem anymore.
Last month, the 10-season veteran was arrested for allegedly beating his wife after an argument over a cell phone escalated into a physical altercation. (RELATED: Star MLB Pitcher Tossed In Jail For Assault)
Mantei allegedly shoved his wife to the floor and held her down while he thrashed her around, which resulted in some minor injuries.
But according to TMZ, Mantei won’t see a day in prison for his actions.
“Mantei appeared before a judge in Berrien County last Friday … and pled no contest to one count of misdemeanor domestic violence. But, we’re told the judge reviewed the evidence and found that Mantei committed the offense of domestic violence, according to prosecutor Michael Sepic. With the conviction, comes punishment … but no jail and no probation.”
He will have to pay $635 in court fees, which he likely already did, so he’s pretty much in the clear now.
