Manny being Manny may include more violence than previously thought. The former outfielder for the Dodgers was arrested yesterday in Florida after his wife told police that he hit her across the face with an open palm, reports NBC LA.

Juliana Ramirez told police that she and Manny were on their bed at about 4:30 p.m. when they started arguing and he hit her in the face, sending her head into the headboard. Fearing that the situation would escalate, she called police.

Manny told cops that his wife hit her head after he grabbed her by the shoulders and "shrugged" her, although it's not clear exactly what that means.

Police found that Juliana had swelling in the left side of her face, though, and a head injury that was consistent with her account of the attack.
