Jose Canseco Gets Familiar With Chico Police

You can take Jose Canseco out of the big leagues, but you can't take the big league out of Jose Canseco. Just hours after his victory in the Golden Baseball League's home run derby, Jose Canseco was involved in some kind of an incident with a woman outside of an Oxford Suites hotel room. No one was arrested, but Canseco and the woman were having a heated argument, and their hotel room was damaged.

See what happens when a guy wins $250 in a home run derby? It goes straight to his head. Not only can he not stay at the Heritage Inn Express with the rest of the Golden League All-Stars, but he can't even just relax and enjoy his stay at the luxurious Oxford Suites.

It's all such a shame. There was a time that if you heard about a Canseco causing an incident at a hotel after a minor league game, you'd have assumed it was Ozzie. Those simple times are gone.
