More bad news for 39 year-old Manuel Manny Ramirez who was arrested on a domestic battery charge on Monday after he allegedly hit his wife Juliana Ramirez on the face and head at their Weston home in Florida. In the 911 call made by Juliana and revealed the following day, her voice seemed calm, upset and shocked, although she described her injuries that included a bump on her head because she was careened onto the headboard. She told the operator she did not need an ambulance.
Mrs. Ramirez never said her husband’s name when they asked her, she did say Manny was not doing anything else because he knew she was calling the police, he was taken to Broward County Jail where he was held until he paid the $2,500 bail posted by the judge, who also ordered him to have no direct contact with Juliana.
Juliana and hubby Manny Ramirez have been married for 9 years, she is from Brazil, he is from the Dominican Republic. They met while she was working at a Bally’s Sports Gym. They have two children together Manny Jr. (b. 2003) and Lucas (b. 2006) plus Manny’s 16 year- old son Manuelito from a previous relationship before his wedding to Juliana in 2002.
Manny left MLB in April after testing positive for drugs, he decided to leave the organization rather than submit himself to the process of a drug violation where a 100 game suspension would have been the consequence and that he will have to do at any moment he decides to make his comeback to baseball.
