Former White Sox, Indian star Albert Belle arrested for DUI, indecent exposure

From the Washington Post:

Former Orioles, Indians and White Sox outfielder Albert Belle was arrested Sunday night and charged with indecent exposure and DUI after he was allegedly seen urinating in the parking lot of a Scottsdale, Ariz., soccer stadium.

Belle, 51, was arrested by Salt River police outside Phoenix Rising Stadium, according to the Arizona Republic, and booked into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office jail, according to a spokesman from the sheriff’s office. Belle was later released on his own recognizance, according to the spokesman.

Court records obtained by the Republic show that a man complained to police that his 15-year-old daughter had seen Belle urinating beside the driver’s side door of his car in the parking lot. The man yelled at Belle, who allegedly responded by shaking his genitals at the father and daughter.

Belle denied urinating in public, the statement said, but officers saw two wet spots next to the car in the parking lot. Officers also said Belle had bloodshot eyes and his breath smelled like alcohol. He admitted to the verbal altercation and told police he had driven his car

He was booked on suspicion of two counts of indecent exposure, driving under the influence and DUI with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher.
