Stupid Sports Arrest Of The Week

According to the fine newsletter from baseball-encyclopedia.com's Lee Sinins, Red Sox pitcher Robert Person was arrested early Wednesday morning for playing his car radio too loud. Sinins goes on to report that "...the police said the loud radio wouldn't have been enough, by itself, to result in his arrest, but Person's [tirade against the arresting officers] afterwards triggered it."

Charges include obstruction of justice.

More likely, Person will be charged later this spring with obstructing a pitching staff, and the Red Sox will cut him. He was a 15-game winner for the Phillies only two years ago, but he's in Red Sox camp as a non-roster invitee.
