Reports: Albert Belle arrested for DUI, indecent exposure

Retired MLB star Albert Belle was arrested at a spring training game in Arizona on two counts of indecent exposure, one count of DUI and one count of extreme DUI, according to multiple reports.

Belle was booked and released on Sunday by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the Baltimore Sun reported.

While details on the charges are still emerging, the extreme DUI charge is used when someone registers a .15 or higher on a BAC test within two hours of operating a vehicle.

Belle, 51, was a feared slugger and five-time All-Star who played for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles between 1989 and 2000.

He spent 10 weeks at the Cleveland Clinic in 1990 to receive treatment for alcoholism, according to the Sun.

In 1991, Belle's career took off as he hit 28 home runs -- kicking off a stretch of 10 consecutive seasons with at least 20 homers. He finished his career with 381 home runs and a .295 batting average.

Belle, who retired at 34 due to a degenerative hip, also encountered controversy during his playing days. Most famously, Belle was suspended seven games in 1994 for using a corked bat, then sending a teammate to break into the umpires' room to replace the evidence.

There was also an incident in 1996 where he flattened Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Fernando Vina on the basepath, drawing a five-game suspension.

He was also sued in 1996 for allegedly chasing teenagers he suspected had egged his house on Halloween and bumped one of them with his Ford Explorer. He eventually reached a settlement.
