Denver police investigate claim against LA pitcher

DENVER (AP) - Denver police say an allegation of domestic violence against Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Vicente Padilla is unfounded and he will not be arrested or charged.

Police said during a news conference Saturday that there is no evidence that Padilla committed a crime and that he has been cooperating with investigators.

Police say officers were called to a hotel near the Colorado Rockies stadium on a domestic violence call at 3:51 a.m. The call was made by a woman but police did not say what her relationship was to Padilla.

Padilla was never placed in custody.

The Dodgers are in Denver to play the Colorado Rockies this weekend.

Padilla went on the 15-day disabled list in April because his upper right forearm muscle was bothering him.
