    Phillies pitcher Urbina arrested in attack
    Reuters News Service

    CARACAS, Venezuela -- Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Ugueth Urbina has been arrested in Venezuela on charges that he and a group of friends attacked employees at his ranch with machetes and tried to set fire to them, police said today.

    "He's been captured and he's held in one of our cells," investigative police commissioner Marcos Chavez said.

    Local Globovision news channel said Urbina was held on attempted murder charges, but Chavez would not confirm the charges in the case.

    Urbina, a Venezuelan native, has denied charges by the workers at his ranch near Caracas that he assaulted them after a party on the property last month.

    A star relief pitcher for the 2003 World Series champion Florida Marlins, Urbina is one of dozens of Venezuelans playing professional baseball in the United States.

    His attorney said he was arrested on Monday night at his home.

    Probably revenge. It's the only thing that make sense.

    A word of advise, don't go home during the off-season.

    Regards,

    That's the first thing that came to my mind.


    Was it his mom or his wife?
