Otis Nixon was a staple piece of so many great Atlanta Braves teams during the 1990’s. Nixon was lauded for overcoming several addictions and beating drugs some time back.
It seems that his demons may have caught up to him. The 54-year-old Nixon was arrested over the weekend after he was pulled over, and officers discovered he had a crack pipe on him and a small rock substance that was believed to be crack cocaine.
A 911 caller reported a red Dodge Ram pickup truck driving erratically on I-575 north shortly after midnight and a deputy was dispatched and pulled the truck over, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“Otis admitted to me that the substance was crack cocaine but it didn’t belong to him,” a deputy wrote in the report. “Otis said the crack cocaine and the pipe belonged to his son.”
After being arrested and booked, Nixon took this hideous mugshot.
Father time has not been kind to old Otis.
