Former Yankee second baseman Chuck Knoblauch surrendered to authorities in Harris County, Tex., Tuesday after he was charged with assaulting his common-law wife. Knoblauch – named in the Mitchell Report as a player who used performance-enhancing drugs – took the anti-anxiety medication Xanax and had been drinking heavily Friday night when he hit and choked Stacey Stelmach, according to prosecutors. Knoblauch was charged with assault of a family member. A change in Texas law that took effect Sept.1 makes it a felony to choke a family member, and the former All-Star faces up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, Harris County Assistant District Attorney Donna Hawkins said. An emergency protective order barring Knoblauch from contacting his wife was also issued. Knoblauch, 41, was being held in the Harris County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. – NY Daily News
