Justin Sellers, current occupant of the Dodgers 40-man roster, might not have to worry about being on it for much longer, as he was recently arrested by the police (h/t True Blue LA/@dpwtv).
Police said Justin Sellers was doing “wheelies” on his motorcycle in a neighborhood near Riva Drive. When officers tried to pull him over, police said Sellers took off.
After a short chase, Sellers turned himself in, authorities said.
West Sacramento police said they have had repeated reports of a motorcyclist driving recklessly in the same neighborhood for the past month.
Given the fact that the Dodgers have a clog of utility infielder types right now, and that they’ll probably be looking for 40-man roster spots after/during Spring Training, he probably couldn’t have picked a worse time to do this.
I mean, running from the police is always a smart idea anyway. Then again, he was apparently repeatedly doing dangerous **** on his motorcycle for about a month, so … what else should I have expected?
West Sacramento, it should be noted, is in Yolo County.
BEST OF MAXIM
HE'S A STUNTMAN
