Baseball star Ramirez arrested

The former Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox star – and one-time baseball World Series Most Valuable Player award winner was taken into custody on Monday evening (12Sep11) following an alleged altercation at his home in Florida.

Witnesses tell TMZ.com he was led away in handcuffs.

Ramirez, who was suspended from baseball for violating the game’s drug policy in 2009, retired as a Tampa Bay Rays player earlier this year (11) after reportedly testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug.
