When to cut a ballplayer?

For reasons outside of baseball ability when do you all say it is SAFE/GOOD/SMART/ESSENTIAL to cut a ballplayer?

I say this is light of recent events regarding Scott Spiezio.  Spiezio left the team last year to deal with a drug and alcohol problem, although now has been issued a warrant.

When do the Cardinals (or any team for that matter) consider cutting ties for what would be best for the team and player?  Do the Cardinals risk not doing something and having this turn into Josh Hancock all over again?  Drinking and Driving is similiar to Russian Roullette although the innocent drivers dont always know they are playing.
