Otis Nixon, former MLB outfielder, arrested on drug charges - ESPN

Quote:
CANTON, Ga. -- Former Major League outfielder Otis Nixon has been arrested on drug charges following a weekend traffic stop in suburban Atlanta.

Nixon was pulled over just after midnight Saturday after another driver called police to report a Dodge Ram truck weaving all over the road, according to an incident report from the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office. The 54-year-old remained in jail Monday afternoon on $11,880 bond.

Officers found a pipe for smoking crack cocaine in Nixon's pants pocket and found a suspected crack rock in the driver's seat, the report says. They later found another pipe and more suspected crack rocks in the floor board of the driver's side, as well as other paraphernalia.
Nixon was the well traveled outfielder who stole 600 plus bases in a 17 year career, but he is most famous for being one of the main contenders for the title of Ugliest Player Ever.

It was Nixon's poor luck to have his career unfold concurrently with All Ugly Hall of Famers:
Willie McGee

and Pascual Perez


Otis of course was inducted to the AUHoF, joining fabled players of the past like
Andy Etchebarren

and the immortal Don Mossi


Otis was on hand to welcome more recent inductees such as
Randy Johnson

John Kruk

and Juan Berenguer

Funny!!! I actually have the same Don Mossi baseball card. I remember being a kid and looking at this card and saying "Damn, I wish I had his abilities, but nothing else."
