Ambiorix Burgos beat the hell out of his girlfriend back in Sept:
Formers Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos’ control problems have landed him in jail. Burgos, 24, was convicted Thursday of beating his girlfriend in a hotel near Shea Stadium in September after she tried to leave their room to go register her young daughter for school. A jury spent just over an hour deliberating before convicting the 6-foot-3, 235-pound righthander of misdemeanor assault. “Why would a man take a few minutes out of his day to hit a woman?” asked Queens Assistant District Attorney Kelly Sessoms-Newton. “To regain control. When she took back control of the relationship, that’s when he began to beat her.” Burgos, who weeks later was accused of killing two women in the Dominican Republic by running them over with his Hummer, still faces charges there. He served three weeks in prison in the Dominican Republic before being released on $57,000 bail. He claims he wasn’t driving the vehicle, though prosecutors say it was his. Burgos will stand trial on charges of abandoning the victims in the Dominican Republic when he is released from the term of up to a year he got Thursday in Queens. Burgos beat and bit single mom Maria Lopez, 26, and threw her up against a wall. But his lawyer, Edgar DeLeon, said the woman waited two days to photograph her injuries and implied that she was out to get the free agent ballplayer’s money. He was sent straight to Rikers Island and faces up to a year when he is sentenced April 3.
These fools are getting crazier and crazier by the day. These punks stay beating up girls daily, but biting them is some kind of weird fetish. SMH
