Dec. 16—Minnesota United star player Emanuel Reynoso is expected to soon be released from jail in Argentina, according to media reports translated from Spanish on Thursday.
Reynoso, 26, was detained Dec. 7 and held under the accusation that he threatened and hit a 16-year-old teenage boy with a gun at a party in his hometown of Cordoba, reports said. Reynoso has been in custody for nine nights and has through his attorney denied the accusations.
Authorities in Argentina have ordered his release, which might come Thursday, and Reynoso must post bail, the reports said. The investigation into Reynoso's actions is ongoing.
The Loons said in a Dec. 6 statement the club was aware of the "alleged incident" and are "taking this matter seriously and ... in the process of gathering as much information as we can."
The Loons will open training camp the third week of January; the MNUFC season opener is Feb. 26 at Philadelphia Union.
