BEAVERTON, Ore. – Police arrested a member of the Portland Timbers Monday night during a disturbance at his apartment.
Jose Valencia, 20, was trying to leave the area when police arrived at 600 NW 158th Ave. to investigate a disturbance call just after 9 p.m., according to Beaverton police spokesman Mike Rowe. There was an argument at the apartment between Valencia and a woman, Rowe said.
Officers said Valencia did not obey orders from the officers at the scene and resisted when they told him he was under arrest. He was taken to the Washington County Jail.
The woman, who shares the apartment with Valencia, was not hurt during the argument, Rowe said.
Valencia is from Bogota, Colombia. He was acquired by the Timbers in December of last year, but is missing the 2012 Major League Soccer season while he recovers from knee surgery.
