The 27-year-old lefty hurler was released Monday morning on $50,000 bond, per Passan.
Urias was reportedly arrested near BMO Stadium, where Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami soccer team was playing a game, the Associated Press reported. Urias was one name on a long list of stars in attendance, including his Dodgers teammate Clayton Kershaw.
Urias was previously arrested in 2019 for domestic battery, but the charges were ultimately dropped after he agreed to a year-long counseling program, the AP reported. He was suspended 20 games by Major League Baseball for the incident. (RELATED:Teacher Who Promoted School ‘Transition Closet’ Is Part Of LA Dodgers Honored Drag Group)
