Manny Ramirez is trending after the former baseball player was arrested at his home in south Florida for allegedly hitting his wife, Juliana.
Ramirez denied slapping her and was released on bail. He has been ordered not to contact his wife.
This arrest comes after a tough couple of years for Ramirez, who recently retired early from the Tampa Bay Rays after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. In 2009, the former World Series MVP served a 50-game suspension after he tested positive for a banned medication while playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
