Former Mets shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested after he allegedly assaulted his wife in a hotel room in Hawaii on Halloween, according to a report from Hawaii News Now. The news report says that Reyes's wife Katherine told police that she had injuries to her thigh, neck, and wrist.

The report also cites sources who said that Reyes's wife told police that he had grabbed her throat and shoved her into the sliding glass door that led to the room's balcony.

Reyes started his career in Major League Baseball with the Mets in 2003 and spent nine seasons with the team before hitting free agency. He then signed a long-term contract with the Miami Marlins, who traded him to the Blue Jays a little less than a year later. He spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons and the first half of the 2015 season with Toronto, but he was dealt to the Rockies during the season in the deal that brought Troy Tulowitzki to the Blue Jays.
