ATLANTA —  Jail records show that former Major League Baseball and former Atlanta Braves outfielder Otis Nixon was arrested on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and permitting an unlicensed person to drive, according to a report posted in the Athens Banner-Herald.

Atlanta police spokesman Officer Kim Jones stated in the report that Nixon, 56, was arrested Tuesday night with no further details available.

Nixon was released from the Fulton County jail Wednesday after posting a $2,500 bond.

Nixon was arrested on drug charges in 2013 following a traffic stop in suburban Atlanta. An officer found a pipe for smoking crack cocaine in Nixon’s pants pocket and found suspected crack rock in the driver’s seat.

The speedy Nixon collected more than 600 stolen bases in 17 seasons from 1983-99. He played for several teams including the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians and Montreal Expos.
