  • Ex-MLB Players Castillo, Dotel Arrested in Dominican Republic on Drug Charges

Luis Castillo, 43, and Octavio Dotel, 45, are the latest example of the privileged biting off more than they can chew.

UPDATE 2: In a press conference, the Dominican Republic's Attorney General stated that the two former baseball players had been arrested in connection with drug trafficking and money laundering for a major drug lord.

Dotel, a reliever who pitched for a then-record 13 teams, and Castillo, a three-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove victor, were taken into custody as authorities executed large-scale searches related to notorious drug trafficker Cesar Emilio Peralta, according to Diario Libre.

Reports out of the Dominican have yet to indicate exactly what roles Dotel and Castillo are accused to have played in the Peralta's alleged drug trafficking and money laundering operations. The attorney general's office says it made more than 15 arrests in the case, and is seeking four more suspects who are in the U.S.
