Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig allegedly sucker-punched bouncer, MLB investigating


Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig couldn’t face some discipline under the MLB’s new domestic violence policy for his alleged involvement at bar Wednesday night in Miami, according to Major Delrish Moss of the Miami Police Department.

The domestic violence angle being investigated is a report from TMZ that Puig had a physical altercation with his sister, which is why bar employees got involved.

But Moss was adamant that only Puig and the Bouncer were involved, no one else.

Per the Los Angeles Times

‘Puig sustained injuries to his face, including a swollen left eye, Moss said, and the bouncer suffered a “busted lip” and other minor facial bruises.

The bouncer told police Puig had sucker-punched him. Puig said the bouncer was overly aggressive. Neither said they were interested in pressing charges, and Moss said the police considered the case closed.

The Dodgers declined to comment, as did Puig’s agent.’
