Manny Ramirez allegedly slapped his wife in the face with an open hand ... causing her to hit her head against the headboard of their bed ... this according to the police report.

TMZ broke the story ... Manny was arrested at his home in Florida yesterday for battery in a domestic incident.

According to the report, Juliana told police she and the MLB slugger were arguing in the bedroom when Manny ... "struck her in the left side of the face with an open hand causing her to hit her head against the headboard of the bed."

Fearing things would escalate, Juliana claims she called police.

When cops arrived, Juliana had red swelling on her face and a small bruise on the back of her head. Cops at the scene took photographs of both Juliana and Manny.

Cops say Juliana refused medical attention.

According to the report, Manny claims he merely "grabbed" his wife by the shoulders during the dispute and "when he shrugged her, she hit her head against the headboard."

Manny was charged with misdemeanor battery in the first degree -- if convicted, he could face up to one year in jail.

I have always thought that when your spouse gets you so mad that you want to slap them, and people do become that mad, and the police is being called, it's time to divorce the spouse and move on as it can only go downhill from there.

Here is another reason why men should not marry: He is ugly as hell but rich, she is cute and young and would have never dated him if he was poor! Now she will file for divorce and take half of his money! Men need to wise up and get a vasectomy and co-habitate for a couple of years and then leave so you don't have to give some gold digger your hard earned money! In his situation it wasn't hard earned since he was a ball player but you know what I mean.

the TRUTH    

every think that maybe she just had it coming due to the fact i have seen many women that deserve a good back hand because they JUST DONT KNOW WHEN THE HECK TO SHUT THEIR MONTH and they keep push and barking and flipping their mouth around cuz some man felt sorry for them and gave them rights alot of women all they do is run off @ the mouth and it turns to things like this if the female would just do the 4 things god MADE HER FOR everthing would be just fine COOKING, CLEANING, BAREING CHILDREN, AND OBEYING THE MAN

For a slap in the face a person could spend a year in jail. that is why our jails and prisons are overcrowded along with arresting people for the personal use of Marijuana.
