Just when you thought that you had heard it all in former athlete arrests, former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes recently got pulled over for a traffic violation in Florida.
Dukes who had previously been arrested five times by police on other charges had a bag of weed in the car and decided the best way to hide was to eat it:
