PHOENIX - Arizona Diamondbacks announcer Miguel Quintana is facing assault charges after allegedly threatening his wife with a knife.
According to court paperwork, police were called to Quintana's home near 36th Street and Lincoln Drive Monday night around 8 p.m.
When officers arrived, they found Quintana's wife Karoly with blood on her legs and cuts on her left hand.
The victim told police she and her husband were arguing about him going through her cell phone. During the argument, Quintana allegedly pulled a knife on his wife and threatened to kill her.
According to court paperwork, Quintana's wife tried to run away, at which point her husband grabbed her, slapped her, and threatened to kill her with the knife.
Quintana's wife called for her son and the two called 911.
When police arrived, Quintana immediately surrendered.
Quintana is facing aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, threat, and criminal damage charges.
The Diamondbacks announcer is entering his 16th season as the play-by-play voice of the D-backs Spanish broadcasts.
In a statement to ABC15, the organization said, "The Arizona Diamondbacks take this issue and these allegations very seriously and do not condone, nor will we tolerate violence of any kind. We have taken immediate action to suspend Miguel until this matter is resolved in court."
