SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (AP) - A woman has filed a complaint against former Yankees center fielder Bernie Williams for allegedly hitting her at a nightclub while she took his picture.

Officer Angel Nazario said the woman claimed Williams snatched the camera, damaged it and hit her in the face. The incident allegedly happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday at a San Juan nightclub, hours after the Puerto Rican team beat the Netherlands 5-0 in the World Baseball Classic.

Williams, who is playing for Puerto Rico, left with the team on Thursday for Miami. It will play the United States in the tournament’s second round.
