Wife of Andruw Jones files for divorce after he allegedly threatened to kill her


More bad news for former Atlanta Braves outfielder Andruw Jones.

Jones' wife has reportedly filed for divorce about a week after she accused him of domestic abuse. She alleged that he grabbed her neck and told her that he wanted to kill her during a spat on Christmas Day.

A divorce complaint filed Monday by Nicole Jones in a suburban Atlanta court says their 10-year marriage is "irretrievably broken."

According to a Gwinnett County police report, the pair had a fight around 1:30 in the morning on Dec. 25 after Nicole Jones asked her husband to help prepare their home for the morning. She told police that her husband dragged her down a staircase, grabbed her neck and said he wanted to kill her.

Mrs. Jones' lawyer declined to comment on the situation.

Jones most recently played in MLB as a member of the New York Yankees in 2012, but he is better known for his time spent with the Braves.

Jones is a 5-time All-Star and a 10-time Gold Glove Award winner. He has tallied 434 homers and 1,289 RBI in his professional career.

The 35-year old is currently a free agent.
