Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested on Halloween night in Hawaii for allegedly assaulting his wife, according to TV station KHNL in Hawaii. Reyes was released on bail following the incident, and it is currently unclear whether or not he will face charges. KHNL reports that Reyes allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and reportedly slammed her into a glass door.

This will be the first test for Major League Baseball in matters of domestic abuse, as the league implemented a new domestic abuse policy over the summer.

Reyes, 32, was traded from the Blue Jays to the Rockies in a blockbuster deal that saw Troy Tulowitzki sent to Toronto in July. He has two years remaining on a six-year, $106 million contract he signed back in 2012 with the Miami Marlins, but is considered a trade candidate this winter.
