UPDATE:

On Monday morning, ESPN reported that Sano would not face charges stemming from the incident.

Sano reportedly spoke to the officer — whom he knew beforehand and went to school with — and went to back up his pickup truck without realizing that the officer had not yet moved his motorcycle from behind him.

Sano was questioned because his truck did not have a license play and he did not have his license, but as the story states, “the baseball player was the first to provide help and never abandoned the scene.”

Also, as noted in a previous story, Sano has offered to pay for all of the officer’s medical expenses.

Multiple reports have come out that Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was involved in a traffic incident early Sunday morning in his native San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic.

NOTE: The Twins have not confirmed anything regarding these reports. Stay tuned to Zone Coverage as more details roll in.

This appears to be the police report filed in San Pedro de Macoris about the incident which occurred near Riverside Bar on Calle Jose Rojas:

Between Google Translate and some knowledge of Spanish, it appears that the officer was brought to the emergency room and tended to by a couple of doctors who suggested he had a fracture of the tibia and fibula — a pair of bones in the leg.

Sano did not have proper identification on his person and was briefly detained, but promised via his attorney to return to the police station at 9 a.m. Monday morning.

Here’s Mariana Guzman’s translation. She’s a Spanish journalist for Twins Latinos.

This string of tweets above attempts to piece the story together (though please keep an eye on Guzman’s feed, as her read on the events has the benefit of not needing to be translated).

This is the tweet that started it all:
