PHOENIX (CBS5) -
The Spanish play-by-play announcer for the Arizona Diamondbacks is in custody for allegedly threatening his wife with a knife.
Miguel Perez Quintana, 53, is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, threatening and criminal damage, according to court paperwork released Wednesday.
Phoenix police said they were called to Quintana's home Monday night and found his wife with blood on her legs and cuts on her left hand.
A probable cause statement says Quintana's wife told police she woke up on Monday and found her husband in the kitchen of their Phoenix home looking through her phone. When she asked for him to give the phone back, they got in an argument, the police report said.
The victim said her husband threw her phone on the floor so she grabbed his computer and told him she was going to break it. The police report said Quintana grabbed a knife and turned toward the victim, telling her if she broke his computer, he was going to kill her. She said she ran but he caught her and slapped her before putting the knife up to her left side of her throat and threatening again to kill her.
The victim called for their son who was in his bedroom. Their son told police when he came into the kitchen he saw his father holding a knife to this mother. The son went on to say as soon as Quintana stood up and put the knife back in the knife block on the counter.
The victim and their son went to his bedroom where he called 911.
Police said Quintana surrendered.
Quintana is in his 16th year as a Diamondbacks' broadcaster. The team says he's been suspended "until this matter is resolved in court."
Quintana and his wife have four boys and Miguel also has three daughters.
