Domestic Abuse Newsbeat

Sunday, August 06, 2017

Steve Lyons’s absence from NESN is due to domestic battery charge

Former Red Sox utilityman and current NESN analyst Steve Lyons has been missing from Red Sox telecasts in recent weeks because he’s dealing with a domestic battery charge after an incident at his Hermosa Beach, Calif., home in January.

Lyons was arrested and charged with domestic battery assault and would likely go to trial in September if attempts to have the charges dismissed are not successful.

A redacted police report provided by the Hermosa Beach police does not include the name of Lyons’s girlfriend or the particulars of the assault. The arresting officer wrote in the report that the girlfriend suffered injuries to her face.

Lyons’s attorney, Richard A. Hutton of Los Angeles, said he expects Lyons “to be completely 100 percent vindicated” of the charges.

“His girlfriend, Stacey, told authorities within 36 hours of the incident that he had never struck her or touched her in an offensive way. And we expect him to be vindicated either prior to trial or if it goes to a jury trial,” Hutton said.

MLB investigating abuse allegations leveled against Rays’ Derek Norris by ex-fiancée

Major League Baseball is investigating allegations by Derek Norris’ former fiancée that the Tampa Bay Rays catcher “physically and mentally abused’’ her during their relationship, league spokesman Pat Courtney told ESPN.com on Tuesday night.

Kristen Eck made the charges in an Instagram post in which she described being abused by “the man I thought I was going to marry’’ before leaving him a year ago with no access to a car and $300 to her name. She did not specifically refer to Norris by name in the post, but a 2015 interview she did with MLB Central identified her as Norris’ fiancée.
