Chuck Knoblauch has been charged with assaulting his wife, and as a result will not be inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame on Aug. 23.

Knoblauch was the 1991 American League rookie of the year with the Twins.

Knoblauch was arrested in a Houston suburb on Wednesday after an early-morning call to the police. He was charged with misdemeanor assault on a family member, and was released on $10,000 bond.

Knoblauch is accused of throwing a humidifier at her before she ran from the room. Police said Knoblauch’s wife had a large bruise on her arm, a large scratch on the left side of her face and a visible knot on her forehead.

Back in 2009, felony charges were dismissed in an incident in which Knoblauch was accused of choking his then-common-law wife Stacey Stelmach at their home. According to court records, he also got a one-year deferred adjudication and a fine in a 2010 charge of assault on a family member.

And it doesn’t end there. He was also charged with interference with public duties after allegedly pushing an officer in March of this year. Knoblauch is due in court on that charge next month.

Note

• Major League Baseball says umpires made the correct call when they stopped a game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees because tarp trouble left the field too wet. The Yankees won 2-1 Wednesday night after umpires called the game with New York batting in the bottom of the fifth inning. MLB said Thursday that the “sudden onset of extreme rain ... affected the ability of the grounds crew to put the tarp in place.” MLB said the umpires were right to halt the game out of concern for player safety.
