Former Major League Baseball star Albert Belle has reportedly been arrested on numerous counts in Arizona, according to Matt Rodewald of Fox 10 Phoenix. Belle was arrested during a spring training game on two counts of indecent exposure, one count of DUI and one count of extreme DUI.

Belle was involved in a few scandals during his career. He was fined in 1996 after leveling Fernando Viña on the base paths. He was suspended in 1994 for using a corked bat. He had a number of blowups with the media, leading to a contentious relationship with them.

Belle, who went by Joey early in his career, receiving treatment for alcohol abuse in 1990. Since retiring, he’s mostly stayed away from the game, rarely appearing at Indians’ events.
