Former Ranger Vladimir Guerrero Denies Involvement In Dominican Nightclub Brawl

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.
