ATLANTA (AP) - Jail records show that former Major League Baseball outfielder Otis Nixon was arrested on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and permitting an unlicensed person to drive.

Atlanta police spokesman Officer Kim Jones says 56-year-old Nixon was arrested Tuesday night. Jones did not provide any further details.

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.
