K-Rod pleads guilty to avoid jail time

Earlier this morning, Francisco Rodriguez (K-Rod) pleaded guilty to opening a can of whoop-ass on his girlfriend’s father, Carlos Pena, and will now undergo 52 weeks of anger management, instead of facing time in jail.

In order to stay out of prison, Rodriguez needs to complete his treatment, which includes both one-on-one and group sessions. The classes have been split up to work around his baseball schedule and involve a step-by-step completion process. If he fails to complete the steps by the specified dates, he will be thrown in jail for 120 days.

Along with this order, Rodriguez also pleaded guilty to two counts of disorderly conduct for sending 56 text messages to his girlfriend, Daian Pena, after the judge specifically told him not to contact her. Since K-Rod couldn’t keep his hands off his phone, he now has to stay away from the Penas for two years. That includes Daian’s father, who Rodriguez has to pay an additional $14,444 worth of medical bills for.

Ever since this arrest took place, K-Rod has been on an uphill battle to repair his image and his hand, which he injured on Carlos Pena’s face. He ended up tearing a ligament in the thumb of his pitching hand and has been riding the pine pony from that day on.

He has admitted to anger management problems and is reportedly making progress with his pitching, but is still miles away from being the All-Star pitcher that he used to be. The good news is that Rodriguez plays for the New York Mets, so it’s not like it really matters if he sucks anyways.

K-Rod busted after pulling out can a ‘whoop-ass’

Another New York jock became a member of Jocks Behind Bars recently after Mets pitcher Francisco Rodriguez was arrested after pulling a can of whoop-ass out on his girlfriend’s father.

This particular can a’ whoop-ass is said to include slugging the victim in the face several times and slamming his head against a wall. The incident led to K-Rod donning handcuffs like seen in this picture and cheesing for the mugshot that can be seen in our Mug Shot Gallery here.

Charges were filed for the altercation that is said to have taken place at Citi Field shortly after Wednesday night’s game and they include third-degree assault and second-degree harassment.

The Mets front office responded by suspending the 28-year-old closer for a few days following the attack and when you do the math associated with that two-gamer it equates to $125,683 according to ESPN, our “world leader in sports.”

“Ownership and the organization are very disappointed in Francisco’s inappropriate behavior and we take this matter very seriously,” said Mets exec Jeff Wilpon.

The New York D.A. handling the case described the incident and said other violent outbursts between K-Rod and his girlfriend are being investigated in South America and California. A Queen’s courtroom set a court date for K-Rod to appear on September 14.

“There seems to be a history of violence,” said the D.A.
