Funny Meeting You Here

Albert Belle
"You can call me
Inspector Clouseau"
We knew that Albert Belle’s on-field antics were signs of sheer stupidity, but his post-baseball civilian life shenanigans are making up for lost time. Belle was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona on Thursday for stalking his ex-girlfriend. Of course when you make millions in the major leagues, you stalk with the assistance of hi-tech gadgetry like a global positioning device.

Belle admitted to placing the GPS device in her car, after it was discovered by her. The unnamed woman told investigators that Belle "had been showing up everywhere she went (the store, on dates, the gym, etc.).”

When confronted with accusations of planting the device, he denied it, but on February 3rd, he left a message on her voicemail apologizing for “doing all that tracking stuff.” He followed up his admission with another message, threatening the woman.

We’re starting to think this guy’s head might be corked (you may recall that he was busted for corking his bat in ’94).

When asked to comment on his arrest, Belle responded by saying, "you didn't write a story about my Hall of Fame induction. You guys never report the good stuff that I do."

The HOF induction he was referring to is the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, of which he was inducted last year. We’re not even sure that HOF exists anymore, so does the induction still count?
