Phillies’ Odubel Herrera Arrested At Golden Nugget Hotel And Casino For Allegedly Assaulting Girlfriend, Police Say

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera was arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at an Atlantic City hotel and casino, police say. Herrera, 27, was taken into custody without incident at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino around 8:30 p.m. He has now been placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball.

Atlantic City police officers responded Monday night to the Golden Nugget for a domestic violence incident report.

When they arrived, they found a 20-year-old woman, of Philadelphia, with visible signs of injury to her arms and neck after allegedly being assaulted by Herrera.

Trouble busin' in from out of state, and the DA can't get no relief.

Herrera's batting average for the year is .222. Seems like the only thing he can hit is her.

Allowing for and conceding the presumption of innocence:

WTF? Why can't men keep their hands, fists, feet, etc. off women?

Those of us who aren’t ########, do. But there are a lot of ######## out there.

In the case of elite athletes, it's almost always the sense of entitlement and the sense of entitlement is bestowed upon them by the wider culture. In a very real sense, we're jointly responsible. We enable this, without question. And for the most part, it's only very temporarily frowned upon -- see, e.g., Addison Russell. We lurch in the direction of frowning, but in the end the games must go on. We've come up with many rationalizations to permit the games to go on. If Russell and Herrera perform, they will remain employed and fans will cheer for them; if they do not perform, they will be sent packing.

I don't think it's testosterone.
