TAMPA - Former major-league baseball second baseman Roberto Alomar was served a domestic violence injunction in Hillsborough County for threatening his wife, including once with a knife, court records show. A hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. Aug. 13 at Hillsborough County Circuit Court. On Monday, he got into an argument with his wife, Maria Del Pilar Alomar, according to court documents. He approached her and pushed her several feet back, according to court documents. Maria Del Pilar Alomar feared for her life and reported the case to the sheriff's office, records show.Deputies also responded to their Avila home on Sunday night after an allegation against Alomar of battery, deputies said. Maria Del Pilar Alomar told investigators she had argued with her husband and he "got within 3 to 4 inches of her in an aggressive manner, which caused her to push him away with her hands on his chest." No arrest was made. On Monday, deputies served the injunction against him. He must stay 500 feet from his wife. He can't contact her, and he must surrender firearms and ammunition. She also has told investigators of two other incidents, according to court records. At home in June, Alomar yelled at his wife and pushed her with his chest. She fell to the floor, records say. Alomar called his family and his father called 911. Deputies were dispatched, but a report wasn't filed. In April, Alomar threatened her with a knife, according to court records.
