Dominican cops assaulted, robbed me: Jean Segura

“The [police] stopped me with rifles, hit me, threw me to the ground and take away my belongings, smash my car like we’re delinquents,” Segura said, as translated from Spanish into English.

“Today it’s me, tomorrow may be another player more. I’m a father with two kids and a wife and if those officials shot at me again then they wonder why we leave our country — They entered my SUV and left it a mess.”
