jim-leyritz-yankees.jpgFormer Yankees player Jim Leyritz is again in trouble with the law, this time for allegedly punching his ex-wife.

Leyritz has been charged with domestic battery after police responded to his Davie home early this morning after receiving reports he had allegedly battered ex-wife Karrie, according to a police report from the Broward County Sheriff's Office.

According to the report, Leyritz attacked Karrie after the two had a dispute over money related to child support.

Leyritz denies attacking his ex-wife, instead claiming that she intentionally injured herself to blame it on him.

The former utility man is awaiting trial on DUI manslaughter charges stemming from a fatal 2007 crash in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
