Danry Vasquez is identified as man in surveillance video beating his girlfriend.
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – Surveillance video that recorded a domestic violence incident involving a former Hook’s baseball player has been released.
Danry Vasquez was accused of hitting his girlfriend.
District Attorney Mark Gonzalez says the case against Vasquez has been dismissed and Vazquez complied with conditions set by his plea deal.
The video, received through an open records request, shows the assault which happened at Whataburger Field, back on August 2nd, 2016.
The video shows a man and a woman walking into a stairwell and heading down the stairs, when suddenly, the man, identified as 24-year-old Danry Vasquez, strikes the woman with his left hand and hitting her in the face. The video continues to show the woman being hit twice, then her hair is pulled and the two walk down the stairs, where she is hit a third time.
Gonzalez says he’s hopeful this situation will have a positive outcome.
“I’m hoping Mr. Vasquez will be the poster boy for our program and never hurt somebody that he’s in a relationship with and only time will tell.”
Vasquez was released by the Houston Astros organization shortly after being arrested and charged. He has signed with another baseball team in Pennsylvania, the Lancaster Barnstormers. On Wednesday, March 13th, the team announced on Facebook that they have released Vasquez from the team after seeing the video.
