ATLANTA — The wife of former Atlanta Braves star Andruw Jones accused him of dragging her down a staircase, grabbing her neck and saying wanted to kill her, according to police records.


A police report obtained by The Associated Press said the fight happened around 1:30 a.m. on Christmas Day, after Nicole Jones asked her husband to help her prepare their suburban Atlanta home for Christmas morning.


Andruw Jones was free on bond after his arrest on a battery charge, according to Gwinnett County Jail records. It wasn't known Wednesday whether he has an attorney.


Nicole Jones told officers that she tried to escape upstairs, but her husband grabbed her by the ankle and dragged her down some stairs, got on top of her and said, I want to kill you, according to the report.


Due to Andruw's level of intoxication, Nicole said that she was able to push him back and move away from him, the report states. Nicole Jones then went to her parents' house.


Police said they found injuries on her neck, which they photographed for evidence.
