Former World Series MVP and current Washington Nationals broadcaster Ray Knight was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery early Sunday morning, according to police in suburban Washington D.C.

Officers from the Fairfax (Va.) County Police Department responded to Knight’s home in Alexandria around 4 a.m. Sunday after an argument between Knight and a 33-year-old man turned violent, the agency said in a new release.

“Both men had visible injuries,” the statement released on Monday said. “The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”

Knight was taken to jail after he was treated at an area hospital. He was released from custody, and a court date has been scheduled for Jan. 8.
