Over the weekend, former #BostonRedSox star, #DavidOrtiz aka #BigPapi, was involved in a shooting at a #DominicanRepublic nightclub that left him hospitalized. Now, according to new reports, a possible motive for the shooting has been revealed. Allegedly, Ortiz was shot in the back by two police officers who were hired by a drug lord that suspected the #MLB player was sleeping with his wife. The #druglord’s identity has not been revealed. #EddyFelizGarcia, who was driving the motorcycle with the shooter on the back, has been arrested. He was captured by angry crowds at the scene and was beaten before police arrived to arrest him. Parts of Ortiz’s intestines and colon, as well as his gallbladder, were removed as a result of his injuries. He also suggested liver damage. The Boston #RedSox are sending a private plane to retrieve Ortiz and fly him to a Boston hospital. David Ortiz is married to his wife of 17 years, Tiffany Ortiz. The pair have 2 children together and live in #Miami
Meanwhile, there is a video circulating on social media that claims to be two women allegedly involved with Ortiz, fighting at his hospital. Some tweets say one of the women is his sister. Others believe they’re both mistresses. Neither woman is his wife.
