DULUTH, Ga. — Former Atlanta Braves star center fielder Andruw Jones was free on bond after being arrested in suburban Atlanta on a battery charge, according to jail records.

Around 1:30 a.m. Christmas morning, police responded to a call for a domestic dispute between Jones and his wife in Duluth.

Gwinnett County Detention Center records say Jones was booked into the jail around 3:45 a.m. and had been released on $2,400 bond by 11 a.m.

Once one of the premier players in the big leagues, Jones broke into the majors with the Atlanta Braves in 1996 and won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves from 1998-07. He has 434 career home runs over the span of 17 seasons in the majors.

Jones earlier this month signed a $3.5 million, one-year deal with Japan’s Tohoku Rakuten.
