Ex-MLB star Chuck Knoblauch accused of assaulting ex-wife

And yet, still no justice for him hitting Keith Olberman’s mom.

Former Major League Baseball star Chuck Knoblauch was arrested Wednesday night and accused of assaulting his ex-wife.

Knoblauch, 46, is charged with assault of a family member after allegedly hitting Cheri Knoblauch.
They divorced in 2012.

Memorial Village police officers arrested Knoblauch and he was released after posting a $10,000 bond.

This isn’t the Knoblauch’s first brush with the law. He was convicted of hitting Stacey Stelmach, who he was married to at the time, in 2010. He was sentenced to one year of probation in that case.

Does this mean Puckett will be removed from the Twins HOF?

I can tell you one thing, his wife wasn't anywhere near 1st base.

#3 is simultaneously amazing and awful.

I dunno, I thought #3 was a good effort, but wide of the mark.

The Yankees of the 1990's sure don't have a great track record when it comes to not running afoul of the law.

I recently learned that "knoblauch" is German for "garlic".

"Your honor, I was trying to hit the dog, which was on the other side of the room."

Did Knoblauch marry Olbermann's mother? Cause he has a long history of hitting her.

"Your honor, my career ISO was only .117. So yeah, I make a lot of contact, but it's not like I do that much damage."

My god, he's been out of the game for 12 years already.

Looks like sh!t in his mugshot.

There's no earthly way I would recognize him if I saw him on the street.

I think #3 wins the thread.
   17. Bruce Markusen Posted: July 24, 2014 at 09:31 PM (#4757287)
He looks more like John Kruk than Chuck Knoblauch.

I think that is probably true of most mug shots.

All still eligible for the HOF and to throw out baseballs, coach...etc...etc...

Indeed. After all, you're generally seeing people on one of the worst days of their entire lives.

Yeah, but he seems to have gained a lot of weight, at least judging by his face.
