NorthJersey.com reports that Mets closer Jeurys Familia was arrested on a domestic violence charge in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

The arrest report says that Familia caused “bodily injury to another” and that they observed a scratch to the chest and a bruise to the right cheek of the victim, whose name was redacted.

Familia was featured in a new ad campaign for an anti-domestic violence organization, in which he says in both English and Spanish versions, “I am a baseball fan. I New York Mets fan. I am not a fan of Domestic Violence.”

Pursuant to Major League Baseball’s Domestic Violence program, Familia faces a suspension, even regardless of whether he is charged or convicted.
