Former Major League slugger Albert Belle was arrested Sunday in Arizona for driving under the influence and indecent exposure. Fox 10’s Matt Rodewald reports the arrest happened during a spring training game in Scottsdale.
The details of Belle’s behavior were not immediately known. Extreme DUI is defined by a blood-alcohol of .15 in the state of Arizona.
Belle, 51, was one of the most fearsome hitters of the 1990s, a baseball bad boy who never shied from confrontation. He was suspended in 1996 after running over Fernando Vina on the way to second base. He was caught using a corked bat in 1994. He constantly feuded with the media.
In 2006, he admitted stalking a former girlfriend and was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
