Marlins reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo (formerly Leo Nunez), was arrested today and will be brought to justice for faking his identity according to the Associated Press.
“In this moment, Oviedo is detained in the American consulate and will be brought to justice for having a double identity,” said Maximo Baez Aybar, spokesman of the Dominican National Police. “That is a crime in our country and in the United States of America.”
Aybar added that Oviedo was asked to come to the American consulate as part of an investigation for using a fake identity under the name of Leo Nunez. Oviedo's agent, Andy Mota, didn't answer AP's calls looking for a reaction regarding his client's arrest.
Oviedo went 1-4 with a 4.06 ERA and 36 saves in 64.1 innings for the Marlins in 2011.
