According to various reports, former MLB all-star Vladimir Guerrero has run afoul of the law in the Dominican Republic. Per Dominican Today, there was an all-points bulletin issued for Guerrero on Tuesday due to an assault against a police officer and his involvement in a brawl at a nightclub.
A native of the Dominican Republic, the 37-year-old Guerrero is currently a free agent after spending the 2011 season with Baltimore Orioles. According to Rafael Rojas, who covers the Colorado Rockies for Purple Row, Guerrero is in police custody in Bani. Rojas has been tweeting updates about the situation in the Dominican that reportedly involved some sort of altercation with an officer, a disco brawl and a late-night chase.
ESPN recently reported that Guerrero was working out in the Dominican Republic in hopes of signing with an MLB team for the 2012 season. Earlier during spring training, Guerrero's agent Fern Cuza told CBSSports.com that the 2004 American League MVP would consider playing in Japan if he did not receive any MLB interest.
