Free-agent pitcher Rich Hill and wife Caitlin were arrested ahead of Week 16 Patriots-Bills game

Rich Hill took over for his wife and was arrested for it.

Prior to the NFL’s Sunday victory over the Patriots and the Foxborough accounts, the 39-year-old pitcher intervened when police tried to transfer his wife to the Foxborough police station. Caitlin Hill tried to gain access to the Gillette Stadium with an oversized bag, which is against the stadium’s policy.

After numerous attempts to enter the stadium through different stadium towers, police alerted Caitlin and planned a transfer to the Foxborough police station, where he would have been recorded for misconduct and encroachment.

Rich Hill attempted to intervene with the police in trying to transport his wife to the station and was later charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

“She saw her as they were trying to get her in a truck to bring them to the police station and she began to intervene with the officers,” said Robert Bolger, Foxborough police chief (via the Boston Globe). “They told him several times to support him and he wouldn’t do it. And he ended up being arrested.”

The charges against the hills were changed from criminal to civil. Both fines paid for the event totaling $ 1,000. Hill’s charge of resisting arrest, which is a felony, was rejected.

Hill, currently a free agent, has placed in eight major league teams, most recently with the Dodgers between 2016 and 2019.
