911 call: Mets closer 'going crazy' before Halloween arrest

The wife of New York Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia said her husband was drunk and "going crazy" in her call to police following a domestic violence incident on Halloween.



Bianca Rivas made several frantic 911 calls to Fort Lee police on Oct. 31, beginning at 2:18 a.m.



The 27-year-old relief pitcher was arrested and charged with simple assault after police said he caused "bodily injury to another." He has pleaded not guilty to the charge, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.



Familia, an All-Star in 2016, could face a suspension from Major League Baseball if he's found to have violated its domestic violence policy.



The Dominican Republic native set a franchise record with 51 saves last season. He's due back in court Dec. 15.
