According to court documents, he’s accused of hitting his wife.
Memorial Villages police were called to their home on Forest Glen around 4 a.m. Wednesday. When officers arrived, they said Knoblauch appeared to be intoxicated.
Police said Knoblauch’s wife told them she was asleep in her child’s room when her husband came in, upset that he wasn’t sleeping in their bed. He allegedly grabbed her by the arm and started smashing her head into a wall.
Knoblauch is accused of throwing a humidifier at her before she ran from the room.
Police said Knoblauch’s wife had a large bruise on her arm, a large scratch on the left side of her face and a visible knot on her forehead.
Back in 2009, felony charges were dismissed in an incident in which Knoblauch was accused of choking his then-common-law wife Stacey Stelmach at their Bunker Hill Village home.
According to court records, he also got a one-year year deferred adjudication and a fine in a 2010 charge of assault on a family member.
And it doesn’t end there. He was also charged with interference with public duties after allegedly pushing an officer in March of this year. Knoblauch is due in court on that charge next month.
Knoblauch, who is from Bellaire, retired from the MLB in 2003. He was AL Rookie of the Year in 1991 when he was with the Minnesota Twins. He was traded to the New York Yankees in 1997 and ended his career with the Kansas City Royals.
He was also one of more than 80 players named in the 2007 Mitchell report on steroids in baseball.
