Incident involving Twins’ Sano under investigation in DR

Twins looking into reported arrest of Miguel Sanó in Dominican Republic

The officer's left leg was broken during the incident, according to the newspaper, which published a photo of him in a cast at a hospital.

Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was arrested on Sunday in the Dominican Republic after running over a police officer at a checkpoint, according to reports.

Sano was questioned by police because his vehicle didn't have a license plate and he didn't have identification on him.

Detained by police for several hours, Sano was released and allowed to return home after agreeing to return Monday to be issued a citation to go to traffic court, a "formality", according to Duran, who added, "Neither the agent nor the national police plan to charge Sano with anything".

A bad moment in Minnesota Twins history came when they made a decision to release an injury-prone slugger named David Ortiz in December of 2002. It was announced today that the third baseman would not face any criminal charges because the incident was not intentional and Sano never attempted to flee the scene.

Kavanaugh sex assault claims were 'all made up'
Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first nominee to the high court, graduated from the school in 1985, two years after Kavanaugh did. During an evening rally in Topeka, Kansas, Trump was greeted by prolonged cheers on what he called a "truly historic night".

Duran said that Sano offered to pay all of Gillandeux's medical expenses. "We will have no further comment at this time".

"The facts of the incident are not completely available right now but the club is in the process of gathering as much information as possible", Twins spokesman Dustin Morse told ESPN.

Last December, Sano was accused of sexual harassment by a female photographer.

On the baseball side of things, offseason leg surgery and then an April hamstring injury led to an out-of-shape Sano's 2018 season being delayed and resulted in (a) the worst year of his big league career; and (b) an extended minor league assignment.

Sano was also demoted by the Twins in June and hit just.199/.281/.398 for Minnesota this season.
