Minnesota Twins infielder Miguel Sano has been arrested in the Dominican Republic, according to a tweet from Santo Domingo News. Sano reportedly ran over a police officer after being told to pull over, then left the scene. The officer is reportedly in the hospital with a broken leg.

Sano had off-the-field issues at the end of last year when he was accused of sexual assault by a photographer. MLB investigated the issue and ultimately levied no punishment.

The 25 year old Sano had a bad 2018 campaign on the field, missing time due to injuries and at one point getting demoted to the minors. He ended the year with a -0.5 bWAR.
