August 05, 2010|By Sports Digest

The wife of retired Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar has obtained a temporary injunction against him after a domestic dispute over the weekend. Maria Del Pilar Alomar, 33, said in a complaint filed Monday that the couple got into an argument at their Hillsborough County, Fla., home on Sunday. Deputies responded, and the wife told them that she had to push Alomar away when he got several inches from her. No arrests were made. The complaint also described an incident in June, in which Alomar, 42, allegedly yelled at his wife and pushed her. In April, he threatened her with a knife, according to the complaint. A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 13. An e-mail seeking comment from Alomar's agent was not immediately returned.
