Mets minor league reliever Ambiorix Burgos has been charged with pummeling his girlfriend at a hotel near Shea Stadium, authorities said.
The 6'3", 244-pound pitcher was arrested around 11 p.m. Monday after allegedly slamming his girlfriend up against the wall at the Holiday Inn on 114th St. and 37th Ave. He repeatedly punched her on the back, bit her and slapped her, prosecutors said.
The woman - whose name was not immediately released - called 911, but declined medical treatment, authorities said.
Burgos is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Queens Criminal Court on assault and harassment charges.
