ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — Criminal complaints were filed with the Rocky River Municipal Court Friday for Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Chris Perez and his wife, Melanie Perez, for misdemeanor possession of controlled substance.
Chris and Melanie Perez turned themselves in on Thursday to Rocky River police after they were both served with the complaints.
They were released on personal bond.
This comes after investigators tracked a package they believed to contain marijuana to the home Perez rents on Parklane Drive in Rocky River.
Evidence has been examined by BCI and was determined to be marijuana with a total weight of 163.9 grams, according to Rocky River police.

“Clearly we take these matters seriously and are disappointed whenever there is any negative attention brought to the Indians organization or one of our players,” said Cleveland Indians GM Chris Antonetti in a statement Friday. “We understand and respect that there is an ongoing legal process that we will allow to evolve.”
An arraignment for Chris and Melanie Perez was scheduled for June 19 at 9 a.m.
