Former MLB Star Hit With Restraining Order. The Details Are Horrifying

Former baseball star Mat Latos has been hit with a restraining order by an ex-girlfriend.

TMZ reported the following details:

Mat Latos — an ex-MLB pitcher who made $28 mil in the bigs — has been ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend after allegedly slashing her tires and threatening to kill her. 

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs which show Mat’s ex-girlfriend went to authorities in Florida to report several incidents in which she claims Mat physically and emotionally abused her … dating back to 2017. 

According to court docs, the woman claims the first incident occurred back in Sept. 2017 — when Mat got angry and flipped over a bed while she was still on it. 

For once, we have a story about alleged problems with pro athletes and a woman, and this time it doesn’t involve the NFL. I simply don’t understand how there are just constantly stories about athletes having problems with women. It is mind-boggling to me. (RELATED: NFL LEGEND ARRESTED. THE DETAILS ARE TERRIFYING)

I’m not sure what the solution is. Maybe there needs to be some kind of mandatory training when guys make their respective leagues, but this is simply unacceptable if the allegations are true.

Allegedly slashing a woman’s tires and threatening to kill her is about as low as it gets. What the hell would somebody need to be thinking in order to do that?

The dude made nearly $30 million during his career. He should just be kicking back relaxing. He shouldn’t be getting hit with restraining orders. This isn’t rocket science. It’s very simple to figure out.

Hopefully these leagues figure out why there are so many problems sooner than later.
