CANTON, Ga. (AP) - Former Major League outfielder Otis Nixon has been arrested on drug charges following a weekend traffic stop in suburban Atlanta.
A report from the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office says Nixon was pulled over just after midnight Saturday after another driver called police to report a Dodge Ram truck weaving all over the road. The 54-year-old remained in jail Monday afternoon on $11,880 bond.
The report says deputies found a pipe to smoke crack cocaine in Nixon's pocket and another in the car. They also found several suspected crack rocks.
The deputies conducted field sobriety tests and determined Nixon wasn't under the influence of crack cocaine or alcohol.
Nixon collected more than 600 stolen bases in 17 seasons from 1983-99. He played for several teams including the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians and Montreal Expos.
