Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested after some type of alleged domestic abuse incident on the island of Maui, according to local reports from news agencies in Hawaii. Chris Tanaka, a news anchor for Hawaii News Now, was among the first to report the incident via Twitter.

The incident leading to Reyes' arrest apparently involved his wife at their Wailea hotel room on Halloween, per Hawaii News Now. Reyes allegedly grabbed his spouse by the throat and shoved her into a sliding glass balcony door. She suffered injuries to her thigh, neck and wrist, according to the report (via Deadspin). Reyes was released on $1,000 bail and was ordered to stay away from his wife for three days, according to a press release from Maui County Police Department.

Four Seasons, the hotel at which the incident occurred, did not issue a comment. But Reyes was believed to be intoxicated that afternoon, witnesses said.

Reyes, 32, hit .259/.291/.368 in 208 plate appearances for the Rockies in 2015. He was acquired by Colorado, along with three pitching prospects, in the July 28 trade that sent Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins to the Toronto Blue Jays.
