Not This Again, Aybar Jailed

Tampa Bay Rays infielder Willy Aybar is in custody in his native Dominican Republic for domestic violence charges, according to a local prosecutor.

"Aybar is in jail since last week, and he could spend at least three more months in jail if he is convicted of domestic violence," said Jesus Fernandez Velez, the appeals court prosecutor in charge.

Good to see he's willing to take advantage of another chance. I won't take the sensationalist approach and assume him guilty, but I'm disappointed that he'd put himself in any situation that could result in an arrest, particularly a week and some from reporting to his job.
