Police say former Cleveland Indians All-Star outfielder Albert Belle was arrested after he and another adult were accused of exposing themselves to two adults and two children in an Arizona parking lot.

The Salt River Police Department said Monday that the 51-year-old Belle was taken into custody Sunday outside of Phoenix Rising Soccer Club Stadium following reports of an indecent exposure.

According to Salt River police, officers stopped Belle because his vehicle matched the description of the two men in the indecent exposure call. He and the other adult, who has not been named, were arrested.

Belle was booked on charges of indecent exposure, driving under the influence and extreme driving under the influence.

The case occurred on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community bordering Scottsdale, Arizona.

It was not known if Belle had an attorney.
