Andruw Jones’ wife files for divorce after abuse claims
Former New York Yankee Andruw Jones‘ wife, Nicole Jones, has filed for divorce from the baseball player after he allegedly dragged her down a set of stairs and threatened her life on Christmas morning. Jones was arrested on assault and battery charges and was released later that day on bond.
On Monday, Nicole filed for divorce, saying their marriage is “irretrievably broken”. The couple has been married for 10 years and has two children together. Her divorce filing did not mention domestic abuse allegations. She is seeking primary custody of their children, child support, alimony, half of the couple’s possessions and for a judge to rule the couple’s pre-nuptual agreement null and void.
According to Gwinnett County police, a fight broke out between Andruw and Nicole at about 1:30 a.m. on December 25, after Nicole asked her husband to help set up presents and gifts for Christmas morning.
When she tried to go upstairs, Andruw, who was intoxicated, allegedly grabbed her ankle, dragged her down some stairs and said, “I want to kill you”.
Nicole was able to escape to her parents house where she called the police. When police arrived to the Jones’ home, they found Andruw passed out on a bed, unsure of what had just taken place.
