DETROIT (CBS/AP) Police in suburban Detroit say Miguel Cabrera and wife Rosangel Cabrera got into a fight at their home over the weekend after the Tigers slugger came home drunk around 5 a.m. Both had marks on their faces that have been alternately described as bruises or cuts.

Birmingham Police Chief Richard Patterson said Monday that Rosangel Cabrera called 911 at 6 a.m. Saturday, requesting police assistance. Miguel Cabrera opened the door for officers.

Patterson says the Cabreras had been fighting and each had marks on their faces as a result.

The chief says Rosangel Cabrera asked that her husband leave the house, so officers took him to the police station, where he was picked up by Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski around 7:30 a.m.

No charges are pending in the case. Patterson says both Cabreras are considered to be aggressors.
