Red Sox pitcher, Steven Wright was arrested on Friday night at his home following an incident with his wife.

According to Steven Wright’s lawyer, Wright was charged with domestic assault.  The Red Sox pitcher has been released from jail.

Here is the statement from Wright’s family that was attained by NBC Sports Boston:

“On Friday night, Steven was arrested at our home following a verbal argument, and the police charged him with domestic assault. Although he said things he deeply regrets, he did not raise his hand at anyone during the incident, and the situation was purely emotional. We are working together as a family to make our relationships stronger, and we ask that you respect our privacy as we do so.”

The Red Sox did release a statement regarding the situation:

“We are aware of the incident involving Steven. This is certainly a matter that the Red Sox take very seriously. It is my understanding that both local police and Major League Baseball are looking into this and for that reason, the club won’t have any further comment at this time.

Let’s hope this situation can get resolved and Wright and his family can go back to leading normal lives.
