Herrera was initially arrested for simple assault. If “El Torito” was found guilty, he faced a $1,000 fine and 6 months in jail.
When he first faced the judge he Venezuelan MLB player pled not guilty. “El Torito” ultimately cut a deal in which prosecutors agreed to drop the charge as long as he completes an anger management course.
