Derek "Shutdown" Bell was arrested on drug charges. He was listed as unemployed. There is no truth to the rumor that he tried to run from police, but stopped halfway down the line.

He stopped halfway down.... :shock: LOL

I really do feel sorry for the guy. Nobody like to see addiction destroy a man.

No surprise there. He hasn't competed for a job since 1991.

I never met him, but judging by stories like these, it seems like he is a piece of crap as a guy, not just a bad baseball player.

According to one report, the arresting officers grew suspicious when Bell appeared to be wearing a fright mask over a month after Halloween was over. Officers continued to tug at Bell's face in order get the mask off.

Who was that guy who got an official Derek Bell jersey made, with "O. SHUTDOWN" in place of the name?
