Steven Wright Arrested For Domestic Assault

Dec 11, 2017 2:00 AM

Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright was arrested and charged with domestic assault following a dispute with his wife, Sharon, at their Tennessee home.

Wright's family issued a statement to NBC Boston through Wright's lawyer, Alex Little.

"On Friday night, Steven was arrested at our home following a verbal argument, and the police charged him with domestic assault. Although he said things he deeply regrets, he did not raise his hand at anyone during the incident, and the situation was purely emotional. We are working together as a family to make our relationships stronger, and we ask that you respect our privacy as we do so."
