Chuck Finley Files For Divorce


Cleveland Indians' pitcher Chuck Finley has filed for divorce from actress Tawny Kitaen, according to NewsChannel5.

The action came days after Kitaen was arrested for allegedly hitting Finley. She was charged with abuse of a spouse and battery after she allegedly kicked Finley in the leg with her high heels, and grabbed and twisted his ear while the couple was driving home from dinner.

WEWS said Kitaen admitted she is addicted to prescription drugs and voluntarily checked into a 30-day rehabilitation program.

Finley has temporary custody of the couple's two daughters.

If convicted in the abuse case, Kitaen faces a year in jail and a $6,000 fine. In addition, a judge issued a restraining order against Kitaen, ordering her to have no contact with her husband.

Meanwhile, The Indians winning streak came to an end at Comiskey Park with a 10 to 5 loss against the White Sox.
