His career is over, as it should be. Second offense.

Los Angeles Dodgers starter Julio Urías was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence charges late last night, an officer with the LAPD tells ESPN. Urias, 27, was booked late Sunday and released early this morning on $50,000 bond.

Julio Urias was arrested for Domestic Violence last night… It's not the first time Julio has been arrested for domestic violence. Back in May 2019, Urias was involved in an incident in Beverly Hills. Urias was accused of pushing a woman he was with, however, he was not charged.

Really talented as a 19 year old as a rookie, meh season this year but some team was going to give him a 9 figure contract...

It does make you wonder if MLB did enough on the first investigation.'

edit: brain didn't work - nine-figure contract, not eight. (now $0)

W/L record is not what it used to be (nor should it) but he had a 20-3 season as a 24 year old. He's a very talented pitcher (5.1 fWAR that season).

Glad I don't have to root for him, however.

Remind me - is there a set penalty for a second DV offense? I thought they added some structure after German or someone like with PED violations.

Apparently Urias was at the LAFC/Inter Miami Soccer match last night with a group of other Dodgers including Betts & Kershaw.

Can't speculate on any details but if this is true...he gone. Fuck him.

These guys really just want to throw away hundreds of millions of dollars...
The rage that goes through their minds. They don't comprehend consequences, they just can't stop. How many times has this happened but didn't get reported?
Urias has an anger management issue and has no business playing professional sports, especially at this level. Yet with millions of dollars at stake, there will be significant efforts made to "drop the charges".

He can throw a football, he’d be a great fit on the KC Chiefs.

Yeah, the Dodgers may need to look internally at what type of people they are putting on their roster.
They added Mookie Betts. Maybe on the same theory that if I drink that Diet Coke I can eat that large pepperoni pizza and it cancels out?

of course as I’ve said elsewhere, this is a city that worships Kobe Bryant, so . . .

I don't know, money and power tends to exacerbate existing moral deficiencies, not the other way around. He probably felt more invincible than ever.
He didn’t get the big deal yet, would have been this winter.

He's already made $25M to date. That's pretty big money (in real world terms anyway). Obviously he probably had 10X that coming to him if he keeps himself out of trouble, but what he's already earned is more than enough to go to his head.

One diet coke only cancels out a small pie, better have two. In a similar vein some 40 years ago, vodka and grapefruit was the drink of choice for a young YTF due to that same reasoning.

They just had Lakers Night at Dodger Stadium on Friday and honored Kobe. I’m sure there is a pic out there of Urias in a Kobe jersey.

Ah, the greyhound. A lot of people on my poker forum drank those for good luck.

I never knew there was a name for it. I should add that this was over 40 years ago, perhaps it wasn't known as that then.
The greyhound cocktail recipe first cropped up in The Savoy Cocktail Book, a 1930 cookbook by Harry Craddock. It wasn’t until 1945 that the drink was officially called a “greyhound” in print, by Harper’s Magazine—supposedly because it was a popular cocktail at Greyhound bus terminals.

Take it FWIW, but there is a Reddit poster who claims to have personally witnessed the assault, by virtue of working for BMO Stadium where it occurred, and that Urias was physically assaulting his wife multiple times, including in an Uber, and corroborating that Urias had to be physically separated from her. Comment chain here. Obviously it should be taken with a big grain of salt, but if it is at all an accurate representation of what happened, Urias is probably not going to pitch again in the MLB.

Outstanding! I'm super glad someone filmed this instead of beating the shit out of a woman beater
Urias is a 220 pound professional athlete. I like to think I would’ve stepped in, but we don’t know enough about the filmer to know whether they had any physical ability to intervene.

Without knowing more about the bystander, odds are it's someone who wouldn't have the ability to do much damage to a 230 pound professional athlete.

Yup. I am 5’9 130.
Urias could snap me like a twig if he wanted to. So there would be no way in hell i would try to intervene
And even recording it is not “stupid” as it can be used as evidence in a potential trial.

Especially since Urias was in some sort of rage. He’s already jacked up with adrenaline.

A better question is why didn’t any of the Dodgers players that were there stop him?
It's hard to know when/if words turn are going to turn into something physical. It's possible Urias' actions were a quick response to something said that no one saw coming. If so, did they intervene and prevent the situation from becoming worse? Were his teammates even nearby when this happened? Is it possible that they or someone else were trying to deescalate the situation and it went sideways? We really don't know what we don't know.
