Former Major League outfielder Otis Nixon has been arrested on drug charges after a weekend traffic stop in Atlanta. The speedy outfielder swiped over 600 bases during his big league career.

Nixon, 54, was pulled over after midnight on Saturday after it was reported that his Dodge Ram was weaving. Officers found a pipe for smoking crack cocaine in Nixon’s pants and a suspected crack rock in the driver’s seat notes the Associated Press.

When asked about the crack cocaine, Nixon said that they were his sons. He passed a field sobriety test but is currently being held on a $11,800 bond.

Nixon missed the 1991 World Series after being suspended for a failed drug test after testing positive for cocaine.
