Former Texas Rangers’ outfielder Vladimir Guerrero has reportedly turned himself into police in the Dominican Republic after being accused of attacking a police officer and inciting a riot during a scrape at a nightclub in Nizao, around 40 miles outside of Santo Domingo--but the 2004 American League MVP vehemently denies any involvement.
"At no time did I attack anyone, nor was I fleeing," Guerrero told The Associated Press, via the Dallas Morning News. "I presented myself at the jail last night after the complaint from the disco, and this morning first thing I went to the police that are handling the case."
Added Guerrero’s attorney, Polivio Rivas: “All that is being alleged is false. Vladimir did not attack anyone--absolutely no one. We're going to follow the process, but everything will be cleared up."
Guerrero played one season for the Rangers, back in 2010, and spent last year as a member of the Baltimore Orioles and is now a free agent. He is a career .318 hitter and is a member of the 400 home run club, with 449.
