Mets closer Jeurys Familia was “drunk” and “going crazy” the day of his arrest on a domestic violence charge, according to his wife in a 911 call obtained by

Bianca Rivas, Familia’s wife, called Fort Lee Police at 2:18 a.m. on Oct. 31, and Familia was later arrested after police noticed a scratch on the alleged victim’s chest and a bruise on the right cheek, according to the police report.

“My husband had a little bit of alcohol and he’s going crazy,” Rivas said in the recording.

The dispatcher later asked if her husband had been drinking and if she was in a dispute with him, and Rivas said “he’s drunk.”

Familia pleaded not guilty to the simple assault charge during a Nov. 10 hearing at Fort Lee Municipal Court, and left the court with his wife. The judge lifted the restraining order between Familia and the alleged victim during that hearing, and he is due back in court Dec. 15.

MLB is investigating the situation, and Familia likely will be suspended for violating the league’s new domestic violence policy. Teammate Jose Reyes received a 52-game suspension for violating the policy last offseason, and others have received a 30-game ban and an 82-game suspension.

Familia, 27, led the majors and set the Mets’ single-season record with 51 saves this past season. He has 94 saves over the past two years. He’s developed into one of the elite closers in the game, but the Mets likely will not have him for a sizeable portion of the season.
