Washington Nationals television analyst Ray Knight has been charged with assault and battery after an incident at his home, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

The 64-year-old Knight reportedly got into an argument at his home with a 33-year-old man. That argument became physical. Police responded to a call around 4 a.m on Sunday.

Knight was taken to a hospital and treated for injuries before being taken to a detention center. He was released on bond, and is set to appear in court in January. The victim was also taken to the hospital and treated with “non-life-threatening injuries.” Police did not release the identity of the victim.

Knight has served as a pre- and postgame analyst for the Nationals on MASN for six seasons. He spent 13 years in the majors, winning a World Series as a member of the New York Mets in 1986. From 1996 to 1997, Knight was the manager of the Cincinnati Reds. He also managed one game with the team in 2003.

Neither the Nationals nor MASN have offered a comment on Knight’s charges at this time.
