WESTON, Mass. --The son of Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy was charged with beating up his girlfriend.

Jared Remy, 27, was arrested Monday at his father's home in Weston and charged with assault and battery and resisting arrest. Police said Jerry Remy wasn't home at the time.

Police in Waltham, where Jared Remy lives, said he grabbed his girlfriend by the hair, threw her to the ground, threw a cell phone at her and kicked her in the back, stomach and face. He also allegedly punched her in the eye and hit her in the stomach.

"She tried to call police and he grabbed the phone away," Detective Sgt. Tim King told the Daily News Tribune of Waltham.

Just picked this up this morning. Since the NYT/Glob owns 17% of the Red Sox which also owns a large share of NESN cable this is fairly significant.

Someone needs an ass kicking...

Awwww sheeesh...not good.

On the bright side- it's not the middle of the season when this would get 5 times the attention and coverage.

Someone needs to have a meaningful chat with this boy..

Being a retired mediocre ball player is,it seems,quite lacerative.Weston is,by far,the richest town in metro Boston and is one of the richest in the nation.

If you bought a home out there 20 years ago then you are likely talking about a different situation than today.

That place reeks of money and leftism.

Don't know how familiar you are with the Boston area (I've lived here all my life) but Weston has *always* been the richest town in the area,so he probably paid very serious $$$ for his house when measured by the price of real estate at the particular time that he bought it.

I grew up two towns over and while it was always a money town, RE in that area has seriously exploded. What used to be $600K back then is now double that, easily.

I would say that Remy is easily making over $250k a year doing what he is doing.

from the Herald:
"Jared Remy, the 27-year-old son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, hid in his father’s Weston home Monday until police caught him and charged him with beating up his girlfriend.

“He was hiding in the house, but he was located after a search,” said Waltham Detective Sgt. Tim King. .

The elder Remy, a NESN color commentator for Red Sox games, could not be reached for a comment. Police said he was not home at the time of the arrest.



No comment available from the commentator.
Jerry seems like a nice guy and I hope he sets his son
straight (his son is facing some heavy charges but
if he did it, deservedly so.)

I think this might be the son who's a roid boy muscle-bound freak.

"Being a retired mediocre ball player is,it seems,quite lucrative."

Remy played ten years in the majors and, according to baseball-reference.com made about $480K his last season. He made the All-Star team once. So he probably had a nice grub stake coming out of baseball. He is also a pretty agressive seller of junk collectibles and clothing items like his scorecards and Wally and Wally's chair, which NESN lets him plug during games. He also does appearances on cruises and such. So, I bet he is pretty liquid. I like his analysis of the games, but I am growing tired of him constantly selling crap.

Thanks for the ping, misterrob. Yikes, how awful. If this is true, I doubt we'll be hearing Jerry talk about Jared anymore during Red Sox games. As GraniteStateConservative mentioned above, I also wonder if this is Jerry's body builder son (I think Jerry has two sons?).

I don't know about his son Jared, but hubby and I can attest that Jerry Remy is (or certainly appears to be) a REALLY nice guy... a real class act. We've had numerous opportunities to "hang out" with Jerry before Red Sox games - at "RemDawg's" on Yawkey Way, which is his barbeque place, and also where they do the outdoor NESN pre-game shows with Tom Caron, Dennis Eckersley, Jim Rice, et al.

We also went to Jerry Remy's All-Star Game Party during the All-Star game in July. Jerry couldn't have been a NICER host of this party for 1,000 fans... he would hang out talking to anyone and everyone (even "bleacher creatures" like us), pose for pics, sign books, hats, etc. for as long as fans wanted. It was an expen$ive party, but well worth it, in our opinion. We had the run of Fenway Park: .406 Club, All-Star Club, clubhouse tour, dugout, batting cages, pics taken with the WS trophy, and got to walk on the field (warning track) and posed with Wally in front of the Green Monster scoreboard. They broadcasted the All-Star Game on the jumbotron... you could sit anywhere in the park to watch it. And it was all you could eat... great food, too. Not just the usual ballpark stuff. Water and soft drinks were included; beer, wine and mixed drinks were extra.

I assume RemDawg will have this party again this July... could be a cool Red Sox fan FReeper get-together... ;-)

Don't forget Jerry also must get $$ for his endorsements of Miller Beer ("Good call!"), and some store for men (name escapes me now). Perhaps Dunkin' Donuts, too?

I have his book "Watching Baseball - Discovering the Game Within the Game", which I got on amazon.com. He probably made a little $$ from that, but I'm sure it didn't make the NYT Best-Sellers list...

"I think this might be the son who's a roid boy muscle-bound freak." Jared Remy is on the right.

Ahh... thanks for that pic. He's kind of a scary-looking dude.

I have to ask... is that you on the left? ;-)

Thanks... I completely forgot the name of the store. Living in CT, I'm not really familiar with businesses in MA, especially the Boston area. We get NESN, but none of the local Boston TV or radio stations.

No. But I often have the same bewildered look on my face.

In the prison hierarchy, I can't imagine that a woman-beater that hides from the police in his father's house will rate very high.

Nah. Curt's ankle wouldn't hold up, Trot would want to drive his kids to school, Tek would fight with his mask and glove on, and Timlin wouldn't be able to do anything if anybody else had gotten a hit in! ;)

hah hah hah, that's funny.

Now if this was someone in the Yankees family

A-Rod would slap him like a woman after preening in front of the mirror with Jeter for 2 hours

Sheffield would claim it was a black thing

Giambi would have Conseco shoot him in (up?) the ass before doing anything

I'm pretty sure Jerry is also trying to get a "Remdawg" hotdog joint franchise going.
