Apparently he got into a fight with him after the game tonight, this all happened in the Family Room at Citi Field.
Heard it on SNY
Wow! You just can't make these things up. I wonder if KRod was pissed that he didn't come into the game in the 8th inning tonight.
Apparently Jerry said

Mets star closer Francisco (K-Rod) Rodriguez was arrested after Wednesday night's game for assaulting his father-in-law, police sources said.
Rodriguez and his wife's father brawled in a tunnel just outside the Mets clubhouse in the moments following the team's 6-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies.
The father-in-law suffered facial abrasions and was taken by ambulance to Flushing Hospital shortly after the 10:15 p.m. incident, police said.
Rodriguez, 28, was charged with third-degree assault, police said.
Moments before the explosion with his family, Rodriguez snapped at reporters who asked why he was not summoned to pitch in a bases loaded situation in the 8th inning.
Investigators believe the emotional closer threw at least one punch during the altercation, which spilled into the hallway outside the team's Family Lounge.
Rodriguez was yelling as he was pushed back from the lounge into the hallway, which was crowded with people, including many woman and children, waiting for players after the game.
Team security arrived and stopped foot traffic in the hallway as they pulled the pitcher from the group and hustled him back into the clubhouse.
When approached and asked about the scene in the hallway, the visibly angry Rodriguez snapped, "Mind your own f-----g business," to a reporter who witnessed the altercation.
Rodriguez then left the clubhouse but was taken into NYPD custody a short time later.
The Mets confirmed their star had an alteration with a relative but referred all further questions to the NYPD.
Before last season, Rodriguez signed a three-year, $37 million free agent deal with the Mets after seven years with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The closer has 25 saves and a 2.24 ERA so far this season.

Soria loves his father in law. he should close for us.
Awesome, just what we need. (sarcasm)
Now Manuel is causing family fights with his mis-use of the Bullpen
That punch was meant for Manuel probably.
Burkhardt looks shaken on tv.
Adam Rubin says no arrest yet but in custody. News and post say he has been charged
K-Rod is clearly nuts but hopefully this is related to Manuel and finally gets him out the door
That $17.5M 2012 option is pretty easily attainable as long as he stays healthy next year too... Although to be fair, he's been very good of late - but of course the Mets are not going to want that option to be reached.
Lets see what Fred and Jeff COUPONS handle this. Maybe there was a Tony Bernazard sighting.
In the memorable words of former Yankees GM Lee MacPhail,"We (in this case the Mets) May Have To Call Off Family Day."
Telling that M. Rivera never liked K-Rod. Asked that K-Rod not be given a nearby locker in AL (Yankee) clubhouse for 2008 All-Star Game.
