Marcell Ozuna was choking wife as cops burst in, police video shows

New police video has emerged of Atlanta Braves star outfielder Marcell Ozuna choking his wife before he was arrested for domestic battery this past May.

Ozuna was arrested on May 29 in Sandy Springs, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta, and charged with two counts of domestic battery.

Police said that, in addition to choking his wife, Ozuna hit her with his cast and threatened to kill her.

Video from Sandy Springs police body cams obtained by TMZ shows Ozuna grabbing his wife by the neck as the cops entered the residence.

“Take your hands off her. Get on the ground!” an officer yells at Ozuna in the video.

Braves’ Ozuna agrees to diversion program in domestic violence case

Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna on Thursday entered into a negotiated resolution that could result in his domestic violence charges being dismissed.


The 30-year-old was arrested in May after Sandy Springs officers reported seeing him choke his wife, throw her against a wall and strike her with the cast on his broken fingers. Felony charges were later dropped against Ozuna, but he instead faced a pair of misdemeanors — family violence battery and simple assault.

Ozuna appeared in court virtually Thursday morning and agreed to enter into the negotiated resolution. The conditions require the Major League Baseball star to be placed on six months of supervision, undergo a 24-week family violence intervention program and complete at least 200 hours of community service, Fulton County Deputy District Attorney Simone Hylton told the court. Ozuna is also required to take an anger management course and undergo a psychological evaluation.
