According to Sandy Springs Police, Ozuna’s wife told them the MLB player “took both her cell phones from the bathroom while she showered without her consent.” When the wife demanded that Ozuna give her the phones back, he allegedly refused, with police saying, “he threatened to kill her, and she threatened to call 911.” Ozuna only left the property after the wife took his cell phone and called 911.
The incident led to Ozuna acting “aggressively” to his wife, even while she held a knife in her hand at one point.” Ozuna only stopped his alleged attack on the wife once police showed up. As of now, Ozuna is facing aggravated assault charges and family violence battery.
