The former Angels and Expos star could not land a baseball job this past offseason. Now, he might be in trouble in his home country.

Vladimir Guerrero played in 2012 for the Baltimore Orioles, hitting .290/.317/.416 with 13 home runs. He turned 37 in February and was having difficulty finding a job for 2012; there were reports that he was considering playing in Japan and about two weeks ago, he worked out for the Cleveland Indians at their baseball academy in the Dominican Republic.

These two tweets indicate this could be a serious matter:

UPDATE: according to this tweet, Guerrero is now in custody:
