Willy Aybar continues to be an awful human being

Friend of HBT Nick Collias just translated and relayed to me several Spanish language reports that have former Tampa Bay Ray Willy Aybar continuing to be a total scumbag.

He has been arrested multiple times for beating his wife — one time putting her into intensive care, but apparently he hasn’t learned anything from it. Now, according to Dionisio Soldevila, a reporter for the AP and ESPN Deportes, Aybar has been arrested for (a) beating to his girlfriend; and then (b) going to a strip club and not paying his bill; and then (c) resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

Aybar had been playing for the Licey Tigers in the Dominican Winter League. Licey has suspended him indefinitely.

What a frickin’ gentleman.

UPDATE:   Here’s a quote about the situation from Fernando Ravelo, the general manager of the Licey Tigers:

“There had been psychologists working with Willy. We did everything that could be done. A few days ago he abandoned the program, and look what happened.”

Indeed.
