Ray Knight was arrested on an assault and battery charge after the former Major League baseball star and announcer ended up in a fight with a 33-year-old man at his Alexandria, Virginia-area home early Sunday, WTTG-TV reported.

Fairfax County authorities arrived at Knight's home about 4 a.m. Sunday in response to a fight between the two men, the television station reported. Authorities said that Knight, 64, and the 33-year-old man were acquaintances, WTTG-TV noted.

Authorities said in a statement that the two men got into an argument that turned physical. Both men were treated for non-life threatening injuries at a hospital, the statement said. Knight was taken to the county's adult detention center after his treatment was later released.

Knight is scheduled to return to court Jan. 8, the Fairfax County police statement said.

"I just don't want to comment," Knight told WTTG-TV. "I just think that the process will take its place and I just know that anything that I say is not going to matter until the process works itself out."

Currently an in-studio analyst for the Washington Nationals' regional sports network, Knight is remembered by New York Mets fans for having several key hits in their 1986 World Series victory over the Boston Red Sox, the website Deadspin noted.

He scored the game-winning run in Game 6 of the World Series when Mookie Wilson hit a ground ball through Bill Buckner's legs in one of the most memorable plays in World Series history.

He was a two-time Major League All-Star and earned most valuable player honors for the 1986 World Series and National League Comeback Player of the Year by the Sporting News, according to his Washington Nationals bio.

Knight played in the Major Leagues for 17 seasons, 13 of which were spent as an infielder with the Cincinnati Reds, Houston Astros, New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers. He retired in 1989 and moved on to become an ESPN broadcaster. He worked as a coach for Cincinnati in the 1990s and managed the Reds from 1995 to July 1997.
