D'backs Spanish Announcer Accused of Assault

And also threatening to kill his wife at their home...

Miguel Perez Quintana is the Spanish-language play-by-play guy for the Arizona Diamondbacks (mugshot right, thanks

Bail is set at $10-grand raising the ire of a lot of people in the desert...

Quintana’s wife told police she woke up Monday evening to find her husband fishing through her cell phone- for what, is not made exactly clear...but he apparently wasn't happy with what he either was trying to find or actually found...

According to court records, Quintana allegedly grabbed his wife during the chase in the kitchen, threw her to the ground and got on top of her, slapped her, put a kitchen knife to her throat and said: “I’m going to kill you.”

The couple’s son walked in on the fight, and told police that he saw his mother on her back on the kitchen floor and his father on top of her, holding a large kitchen knife.

Quintana was arrested Wednesday and has a preliminary hearing on the 26th...
