Torii Hunter was placed on the Los Angeles Angels' restricted list Monday after his teenage son was arrested in Texas.
The town of Prosper, Texas, issued a news release announcing 17-year-old Darius McClinton-Hunter of neighboring McKinney, Texas, was arrested Monday in a sexual assault case. The release said Prosper police made five arrests after a monthlong investigation of sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony.
Prosper police spokesman Celso Martinez confirmed McClinton-Hunter is Torii Hunter's son. Hunter's family lives in Prosper, a suburb north of Dallas that's home to several prominent athletes including Deion Sanders and Hunter's teammate, reliever LaTroy Hawkins.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Hunter has left the team, but refused to say how long Hunter will be away from the club.
''It's a personal matter,'' Scioscia said. ''We're going to go day-to-day, and we'll just see where it is. That's all I'm going to say.''
