Marlins' Olsen Arrested

AVENTURA, Fla. (AP) _ Florida Marlins pitcher Scott Olsen was
arrested early this morning after police say he refused to pull
over and got into a fight with officers.
The 23-year-old Olsen was booked into the Miami-Dade county jail
on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest with
violence and fleeing and eluding a police officer. He remained in
jail this afternoon.
A police lieutenant says Olsen was arrested in the Miami suburb
of Aventura, where an officer clocked him driving 48 miles-per-hour
in a 35 miles per hour zone. Police tried to pull him over, but
Olsen continued to drive about one mile, running a stop sign before
stopping at his home.
He got out of his car and sat down on a plastic chair in front
of his home. When backup police arrived and tried to arrest him,
Olsen allegedly kicked at the officers, who used a stun gun on the
six-foot-five pitcher.
