PHOENIX (AP) - The Spanish play-by-play announcer for the Arizona Diamondbacks who was arrested for allegedly threatening his wife with a knife has pleaded not guilty.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 53-year-old Miguel Perez Quintana entered his plea Thursday. His next scheduled court date is a Nov. 13 initial pretrial conference.

Quintana was arrested July 15 on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and criminal damage.

Phoenix police say they were called to Quintana's home and found his wife with blood on her legs and cuts on her left hand.

Karoly Quintana told police that she and her husband were arguing about him going through her cellphone when he allegedly grabbed a knife from the kitchen and threatened to kill her.

The Diamondbacks suspended Quintana until the case is resolved in court.
