Here’s an update on a story we
lifted reported last month.
Former Orioles/White Sox/Indians slugger Albert Belle (mugshot from deadspin.com) was denied bond after a second arrest on stalking charges:
On Friday, he appeared before Judge James Keppel to request release from jail. Keppel turned him down.
In his ruling Monday, Keppel wrote, “that the state has shown that proof is evident or the presumption great that the defendant did commit the offense of stalking while he was on release.”
Critics be warned, Belle wants to inform you all that he’s still all business.
The alleged victim admitted at Friday’s hearing that she had once been a licensed escort; Belle maintained that their relationship was “clearly business.” The woman filed a complaint against him in January; he was charged with stalking and released on $108,000 bond.
