Former Reds player, manager arrested, charged with assault
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP/WKRC) - Former Major Leaguer and current TV analyst Ray Knight has been charged with assault following an incident in his northern Virginia home.
Fairfax County Police said they were called to Knight's Alexandria area home about 4 a.m. Sunday for reports of a fight.
Police say Knight got into a fight with a 33-year-old male acquaintance and that both had visible injuries.
The 33-year-old went to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Knight also was treated at the hospital, then taken to jail for booking on an assault and battery charge. He was released with a January court date. It wasn't immediately known if he has a lawyer.
The 64-year-old Knight spent 13 seasons in the majors and presently works as an analyst for the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network on Washington Nationals broadcasts.
Knight played for the Cincinnati Reds in 1974 and again from 1977-1981. He managed the team for the 1996 season, finishing 81-81. Knight was at the helm for 99 games in 1997 and then 1 game in the 2003 season.
