TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Former Major League Baseball player Elijah Dukes is accused of aggravated battery of a pregnant woman.

Hillsborough County Jail records show Dukes is being held without bond after his arrest Wednesday. He also was arrested on charges of driving with a license that has been suspended or revoked and a contempt of court warrant.

Dukes began his career with the Tampa Bay Rays and was traded to the Washington Nationals in 2008. He was released before the 2010.

Dukes signed last June with the independent Newark Bears of the Atlantic League.

Jail records did not indicate whether Dukes has an attorney. Attorney Grady Irvin Jr. says he no longer represents Dukes.
