Julio Urias, L.A. Dodgers Pitcher, Is Charged With Domestic Violence

The Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias was arrested late Sunday night and charged with a domestic violence felony after a physical altercation with his wife at a stadium in South Los Angeles, the authorities said on Monday.

The altercation took place following a Major League Soccer match at the BMO Stadium, according to Assistant Chief Chris Carr of the Exposition Park Department of Public Safety, which manages the stadium and surrounding area.

Urias, 27, was arrested just after 11 p.m. and released on $50,000 bail just before 5 a.m. on Monday, according to a booking document from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He is scheduled to appear in court on Sep. 27.

Further information regarding the details of the arrest were not immediately available.

On Monday, the Los Angeles Dodgers said it was “aware of an incident” involving the player.

The policy states that players may be placed on paid administrative leave for up to seven days while the commissioner’s office investigates accusations against them, but the leave has been extended in past cases.

Urias was suspended for 20 games, or around three weeks, following the 2019 incident, Mr. Weisman said by email. He did not comment on whether Urias would be suspended as a result of Sunday’s arrest.
