New, comment

The Mets are so bad, their players are being thrown in jail. Well, it hasn't come to that yet but the last part is true. New York Mets Francisco "K-Rod" Rodriguez is in custody after what police called a "physical assault" on a family member at Citi Field.

Police say Rodriguez will be charged with third-degree assault.

Police say the incident occurred after the Mets' 6-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. Police did not say which family member Rodriguez scuffled with, but said the unidentified man had minor injuries.

The unidentified man has since been identified as his father-in-law, making this even crazier.

Amazin Avenue has some of the details as this unfolds. The Mets have also released a statement confirming most of what's out there already.

"There was an incident between Francisco Rodriguez and his family tonight at the ballpark. He was questioned by police and all other questions pertaining to this incident will be referred to the police department."

According to ESPN's Adam Rubin, the father-in-law "suffered abrasion to face." Stay tuned...
