Atlanta Braves outfielder and designated hitter Marcell Ozuna was arrested for driving under the influence and failure to maintain lane charges early Friday morning, according to CBS 46 News in Atlanta.
Ozuna was booked into the Gwinnett County jail at 4:39 a.m. Friday, according to the report. Ozuna was released on a $1,830 bond Friday morning, per ESPN.
In May 2021, Ozuna was arrested on charges of battery and aggravated assault by strangulation after police officers said they saw him choking his wife. Those charges were later reduced to misdemeanor family violence.
Ozuna was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball and later was retroactively suspended 20 games in November for violating baseball’s domestic violence policy.
He returned to the Braves in March and has appeared in 107 games during the 2022 season, hitting .214 with 46 RBI’s and 20 home runs.
Ozuna was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service, take an anger management course and complete a 24-week family violence intervention program.
“I learned everything,” Ozuna said of counseling. “I learned how you treat a person, how you be a better person, how you be the best daddy, how you be a human being. You learn everything from that.”
Ozuna is in the second year of a four-year, $65 million contract with the Braves.
