The charges in former MLB All-Star Albert Belle's indecent exposure case have been dropped, according to TMZ Sports.

Per Fox 10's Matt Rodewald, the 51-year-old Belle was arrested at a spring training game in Scottsdale, Arizona, last month on a number of counts:

BREAKING: Albert Belle arrested in Scottsdale during a spring training game. 2 counts of indecent exposure 1 count of DUI (using liquor, drugs or vapors) 1 count of Extreme DUI (BAC of .08 or more) https://t.co/3zMgRczQi3

Belle reportedly urinated in public, and when asked to stop by a nearby family, he allegedly exposed himself to a father and daughter. The reasoning behind the dropping of the charges was not made public to TMZ.

He made five All-Star teams during his 12-year career, playing for the Cleveland Indians, the Chicago White Sox and the Baltimore Orioles. While the 1995 American League home run champ was known for his power (381 career home runs), he is perhaps most famous for unique style of breaking up a double play.

He last played in the majors back in 2000 before retiring due to a hip condition.

The March arrest is not the only time he has had a problem with the law during retirement. Back in 2006, Belle was sentenced to 90 days in jail and five years of probation after pleading guilty to a felony stalking count.
