New York Mets closer Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez is in police custody Wednesday night after an altercation with his father-in-law at Citi Field following the Mets’ 6-2 loss to the Rockies.
The Daily News has details on what happened leading up to and after the ruckus.
Investigators believe the emotional closer threw at least one punch during the altercation, which spilled into the hallway outside the team’s Family Lounge.
Rodriguez was yelling as he was pushed back from the lounge into the hallway, which was crowded with people, including many woman and children, waiting for players after the game.
When approached and asked about the scene in the hallway, the visibly angry Rodriguez snapped, “Mind your own f——-g business,” to a reporter who witnessed the altercation.
Unfortunately for K-Rod, no one is going to mind their own f——-g business now. The Wall Street Journal adds another colorful quote from the reliever following the game.
When approached at his locker by reporters seeking comment, Mr. Rodriguez said: "Did I f-----g pitch? Then why do I gotta talk to you guys, then?"
