Assault charges dropped against D-backs announcer

PHOENIX — Charges accusing an announcer for the Arizona Diamondbacks of
threatening his wife with a knife during an argument at their home have been
dismissed.

Team Spanish-language announcer Miguel Perez Quintana was arrested July 15 and
later charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and criminal damage.

Maricopa County Superior Court records said a judge dismissed the charges
against Quintana, 53, on March 11 at prosecutors’ request.

County Attorney’s Office spokesman Jerry Cobb did not immediately respond
Tuesday to a request for an explanation of the motion.

Quintana had pleaded not guilty, and court records indicate he rejected at
least one plea offer.

The Diamondbacks had suspended Quintana pending resolution of the case.

The team did not immediately respond to an inquiry on Quintana’s status with the organization.
