NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez is in custody after what police called a “physical assault” on a family member at Citi Field.

Police say Rodriguez will be charged with third-degree assault.

Police say the incident occurred after the Mets‘ 6-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. Police did not say which family member Rodriguez scuffled with, but said the unidentified man had minor injuries.

The Mets confirmed there was an incident between Rodriguez and his family, and referred all questions to the police.
