LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Robby Albarado, a jockey scheduled to ride in Friday's Kentucky Oaks race, has been arrested and was in jail briefly on domestic violence charges, according to police.
That means he won't be riding any races during the Oaks, but his status for Derby Day is still unclear.
According to an arrest warrant, Albarado got into an argument with a woman on May 1. Police say she was using the phone when he lunged at her. He then allegedly chased her into the bathroom, and when the victim shut the door, he broke it to get inside.
Police say Albarado then cornered her in a walk-in closet attached to the bathroom and began grabbing her, "causing scratches to her left bicep/tricep area. He then allegedly placed her in a "bear hug," leaving her unable to move her arms, and threw her to the ground. His body landed on top of hers.
The pair wrestled on the ground, until the woman pushed Albarado off of her and left the home.
She drove herself to Jewish Hospital and a police report was made.
Police say she suffered from a shoulder injury (including a possible ripped ligament), as well as bruising to her legs and biceps.
Albarado was arrested shortly after 9 a.m. Friday and charged with fourth degree assault.
Albarado was released on his own recognizance Friday afternoon. He did not have to post bond.
