Yu Darvish's younger brother, Sho Darvish, was arrested on the 15th on suspicions of causing an injury to a minor, a nineteen-year-old acquaintance, by hitting him.
According to reports, some time between October 3 and 4, Sho Darvish and three other acquaintances, between the ages eighteen and nineteen, hit and kicked a minor in the face and caused injuries that will require about two weeks to heal.
The minor appeared at a police station earlier this month with a bruise on his face. Sho Darvish was questioned by police after his name was mentioned and told officers, "I was frustrated by the guy's attitude and hit him."
Sho Darvish was arrested last February for hitting a woman in the face. He was given a four-year suspended sentence with a possible one-year prison term.
Sho Darvish made his pro debut as an MMA fighter in an Outsider tournament on September 8.
