Chapman won’t face charges in domestic violence case

According to TMZ sports, Aroldis Chapman will not face any charges in the domestic violence investigation filed against him in October.

Chapman’s girlfriend filed a police report on October 30, 2015, stating that Chapman choked and pushed her after she snooped through his cell phone.  The state prosecutor sent out a memo around 10:45 this morning explaining some details of the decision not to file charges.

Chapman admitted to injuring his hand after punching out a car window during an argument with his girlfriend, but he denied ever punching her. He did admit to poking her on her left shoulder, telling her not to talk to him like she was.

Now for the interesting note on the gun. There were no witnesses that saw Chapman fire a gun, and even if he did unload rounds from his weapon, he didn’t violate any Florida laws as he was on his own property.

The reason the decision was made, according to Florida state prosecutors, is because there was not enough evidence to get a conviction. Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner recently said of Chapman, “innocent until proven otherwise.”

This is big news for the Yankees, and bodes well for Major League Baseball not suspending Chapman for any amount of time.  With this news, the Yankees surely will have a lock down big three in the bullpen.  Now let’s see if the Yankees sign Chapman to a long term deal.
