Police arrested the 26-year old former outfielder Wednesday after his pregnant ex-girlfriend told police that Dukes had hit her multiple times across the face during an altercation on Sunday.
The incident took place at a motel in Dukes' native Florida, according to Ileana Morales of the St. Petersburg Times.
Morales also reported that when Dukes was arrested, he had several outstanding warrants for contempt of court and driving with a suspended license.
Former Nationals outfielder Elijah Dukes has admitted that he would sometimes smoke marijuana before home games when he played for Washington.
In addition to this revelation, Dukes alleges that fellow players were smuggling drugs onto chartered aircraft and using them in hotel rooms after flights. He contends that he was "thrown under the bus" by baseball after coming forward with this information. Also of note is that Dukes is evidently trying a new career as rapper "Fly Eli." It's safe to assume that his career in baseball is over.
