According to the Gwinnett Police arrest report, Andruw Jones left "visible" injuries around his wife's neck after the incident early Christmas Day. He consumed "several" alcoholic beverages during a Christmas Eve party at their home, the report says.
The criminal case, a misdemeanor, is still pending in Gwinnett State Court.
