Waukesha, WI - On Thursday, the Waukesha County District Attorney's Office (WCDA) decided to dismiss a disorderly charge against Francisco "K-Rod" Rodriguez, 30, of Coral Springs, Florida, a relief pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers. Rodriguez' live-in fiancé left the U.S. and returned to Velenzuela and the WCDA didn't expect her to return and testify against him. Rodriguez had been charged with one misdemeanor count for disorderly conduct stemming from a domestic abuse case, which was amended from battery domestic abuse also a misdemeanor. Rodriguez allegedly punched, kicked and beat his 23-year-old fiancé at his Wales residence on September 18, according to the criminal complaint.
The complaint stated that Rodriguez beat his fiancé after she accused him of cheating. His fiancé who has a child from Rodriguez called the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department from their Town of Wales residence. When deputies arrived at the residence, they found Rodriguez' fiancé crying and hiding in a closet. Deputies reported that the battered woman had suffered a noise bleed, had her hair pulled, injured an upper left shoulder blade, had a bruised upper left thigh, also injured her left hand near her wrist after Rodriguez threw her to the floor and then began to repeatedly kick her, according to the complaint.
