La Romana, Dominican Republic.- Three people have come forward to testify in the trial against San Francisco Giants player Angel Villalona (Papa), in the murder of the Mario Felix de Jesus Velette,  25, in the club "D’Tony Super Fría."

Their testimonies agree, according to the La Romana Office of the Prosecutor, that the prospect shot a killed de Jesus on Saturday night, September 19, after an argument over a seat led to a scuffle in the club.

Permanent Instruction judge Araníbal Manzano sent the player to jail for two months, until the start of the trial, and if convicted faces up to 20 years in prison.

Villalona’s talent led him to sign a bonus of 2.1 million dollars.

if he was a true player / high roller all he had to do was to send one of his people to talk with the owner of the place. they would have given the chair to the guy that would spend the most $$$

Mental giants getting drunk on liquor and drugs, while carrying a pistola, and then shooting someone over nothing. Happens all the time over minor traffic accidents, simple quarrels.

I am surprised half the population doesn't shoot the other half for just being so uncivilized!

No kidding, they will pull on the wrong side of the street because they don't want to wait fo the car in front of them. Ever stand in a line here in the DR? People walk right in front of you.

What a country, what a people.

people cut in front of others in various ways. when you are in the DMV, for instance, guys do it on the sly. they sidle in when they think you are not paying attention. in the DR, they look you straight in the face and just go ahead of you. i was in pricesmart once , awaiting my turn to have veggies weighed. some guy just walked in at an angle and started throwing his stuff on the counter, ahead of me. i alerted him to the fact that i was there ahead of him, and he responded " i did not know you wanted to have veggies weighed". to which i responded "i do not. i just love to watch people weigh things".

All over a seat ?
Could life be that cheap in the DR........
With the Baseball contract money Villalona could buy 10 Clubs with thousands of seats of many colors, shapes and sizes.
He must of sat on his brains, when found.

Was the weapon legally owned ?

How many shots fired ?

A bullet proof vest for Villalona's protection ?

Is Villalona hated that much? Kevlar Helmet......Watch out for a head shot.

If convicted let him serve 20 more years for being plain stupid.

Heart felt prayers for the Victim and His Family. No one deserves this.

mrios, go read xwill's posting; little pee pee, bad use of firearms. or Lopez 31; the results of a 5th grade education. not much more than those two remarks need be said. the act of a macho chimpanzee, that's all.

its better that it happened now than later if he playing for mlb. People that act like idiots do not deserve to step one foot onto a MLB field. He could be in jail thinking about what his life as an MLB player would have been. could drive him insane

Another JACKASS gets it. I wonder if he will be jailmate with the other JACKASS that was deported from NYC. Once again they need to get right where it hurts the most. Our society should not stand for this type of behavior, we should not condone this type of behavior and we should always punish those that commit these atrocious crimes against good productive citizens.

The reporting on this story is a joke. What about all of the witnesses who said Angel wasn't involved? It seems like there is a lot more to this story that has not come out. Unfortunately, people are too quick to conclude that he is innocent or guilty without knowing all of the details.
