Manny Ramirez

Off the Hook

in Domestic Violence Case

3/30/2012 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Manny Ramirez and wife Juliana

Manny Ramirez will not be prosecuted for misdemeanor battery for allegedly slapping his wife Juliana in their Florida home last year ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the State Attorney's Office tells us ... "The state dropped the charge because the victim was uncooperative. She successfully avoided being served with a state subpoena and is believed to be out of state."

TMZ broke the story ... Manny was arrested on September 12 ... after Juliana called police and claimed Manny had slapped her in the face with an open hand ... causing her to hit her head against the headboard on their bed.

Manny had maintained that he had merely grabbed Juliana by the shoulders during an argument and when he "shrugged her" ... she hit her head against the bed.

Drop the charges now because you have a pre-nup and you like the lifestyle. I guess we'll have to wait for him to kill you until you actually press charges....wait, what?

This makes NO SENSE. They THINK she is out of state and that makes HER uncooperative so HE gets a free pass on DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

By his own statement he shook her. That in itself is an admission to battery.

I guess prison is just for the unrich and the unfamous.

Another stupid women who is with a man of wealthy who care more about the money than self pride and doing the right thing. So she rather be hit than set an example for other women and put this @SS in jail. That goes for Rihanna too.

This is what happens when you marry a gold digger, just ask OJ Simpson and Nicole, oh wait, Nicole may not answer.

Big bad MEN, beats women---NOT MEN. Like most domestic abuse situations that chick was either threatened,, he begged and cried like a bitch, paid off or she decided that she LOVES him... YIKES

She has a square face. He was tired of looking at all those right angles, wanted some feminine curves in there.

There's a problem here    

He slapped her head into the bed? Sounds like girlfriend didn't want to put out for her $$ that evening.

I met Juliana around 12 years ago when she was a simple hostess for Joe's in Boston. She was trying to date all of the rich Arab guys in hopes of landing gold. Her golddigger fantasies came true when she married this thug.
She managed to get pregnant so she could seal the deal... I'm sure she would have never married Manny had he been earning a normal salary.
