Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes’ domestic abuse charge gets dropped

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Maui prosecutors are moving to dismiss a domestic abuse charge against suspended Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Kerry Glen says Wednesday, March 30, 2016, she’s dropping the case because Reyes’ wife is not cooperating.

A Hawaii judge has approved dismissing a domestic abuse charge against Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes.

Deputy Maui Prosecuting Attorney Kerry Glen said Monday that the judge signed off on the move but will give prosecutors about two years to refile charges if Reyes’ wife cooperates.

Glen says it’s impossible to move forward with prosecution without cooperation from Reyes’ wife, who refuses to speak with prosecutors.

The former New York Mets shortstop was arrested Oct. 31 at the Wailea Four Seasons Resort.

Reyes was released after posting $1,000. The bail will be returned now that the charge is dismissed.

Reyes can still ask the judge to dismiss the case outright, taking away prosecutors’ ability to refile charges. So far, defense attorney David Sereno hasn’t filed a motion requesting that.
