Padres pitcher Jose Torres facing domestic violence charges

Padres reliever Jose Torres was arrested in December after a dispute in which he allegedly brandished a semiautomatic handgun.

The incident occurred in the home Torres shares with his wife in Phoenix and is being handled as a domestic violence case, according to court documents.

According to the probable cause statement contained in the court report, Torres knocked a door off its hinges and punched a hole in another door. He also pointed the gun at the victim, according to the report.

Torres was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, criminal damage and making threats or intimidation.

Not a good look for Mr. Torres.
