An arrest warrant was issued for former baseball star Jose Canseco on Friday for violating his probation stemming from a nightclub brawl.
Circuit Judge Leonard E. Glick issued the warrant after being told Canseco has failed to begin community service, take anger control classes and not leave Florida for longer than 30 days. Those were among the conditions of his probation, as well as the payment of court costs and sending monthly reports.
"The subject does not appear to take probation seriously," probation officer Ileana Ortiz told Glick in a report. Ortiz said Canseco has been in Los Angeles since Dec. 20.
Well, Sammy has gotten 8 games and is appealing. Considering that's less than the Joey Belle punishment, and the evidence was blatant, this should be an example of the appeal leading to a longer suspension.
