Former Major League Baseball All-Star Albert Belle was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona on Sunday.

Albert Belle, perhaps once the most-feared hitter in all of baseball, was arrested on Sunday and charged with four crimes. Belle was reportedly arrested at a spring training game in Scottsdale, Arizona. He's being charged with two counts of indecent exposure, one count of DUI and one count of extreme DUI.

Matt Rodewald of FOX 10 posted Belle's mugshot.

USA Today Sports reached out to the Salt River Police Department for comment, but they have not replied to the request.

Belle was a five-time All-Star, playing for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles during his career. He led the American League in home runs in 1995 with 50.

Belle, for his career, batted .295 with 381 home runs and 1,239 runs batted in.

Belle did have a bit of a controversial career, however. In 1994, he was caught using a corked bat and consequently suspended. In 1996, he viciously knocked down Brewers second baseman Fernando Vina attempting to break up a double-play. He was also reportedly a tough teammate to get along with.

We'll update this post when more information is released.
