He pleaded not guilty to the charges but was unable to go since he has outstanding two old fines for theft and wounding for which he will have to spend three years in jail. 

Saldano was most recently arrested after Tiesha Palacio reported to police that on Monday, November 18, 2013) she and Saldano got into an argument where he picked up a beer bottle, broke it and then placed it to the left side of her neck which caused a cut wound. Palacio became fearful for her life and as a result, reported the matter to police requesting court action.

Saldano is due back in on December 20, 2013.
