Another news source, Diario Libre, said Sano was arrested and released with a promise to return Monday morning. "It is a formality when someone is injured in a vehicular accident".
Sano is coming off a shortened season after injuring his surgically repaired left leg. According to a translation of the newspaper's story, the officer "ordered Sano to stop at a checkpoint, but he continued (and) ran over the uniformed officer, leaving him with serious damage".
Gillandeux, who suffered fractures to both the tibia and fibula of his left leg, was taken to the hospital by Sano, according to Duran, who added that the police officer and Sano know each other and attended school together.

A bad moment in Minnesota Twins history came when they chose to release an injury-prone slugger named David Ortiz in December of 2002.

The infielder was under investigation earlier this year after he was accused of sexual assault in December.
But Sano followed with perhaps the most disappointing season of what has been an underachieving career thus far. Over 299 plate appearances with the Twins, Sano posted a.199/.281/.398 slash-line with 13 home runs and 41 RBI while striking out 38.5 percent of the time.
