HOUSTON --We're getting our first look at injuries suffered by Astros pitcher Brandon Backe during a scuffle with police in Galveston over the weekend. Galveston police released Backe's mug shot Thursday. You can see he has scrapes on his face. Backe was part of a wedding party which got into a struggle with officers at the San Luis H2O bar.
Eyewitnesses claim police used excessive force. Backe's attorney has contacted the U.S. attorney's office.
