Las Vegas police: Jose Canseco accused of sexual assault
Former major league slugger Jose Canseco is under investigation for sexual assault after a woman filed a report with the Las Vegas Metro police, according to TMZ.com.
Canseco, 48, is scheduled to play for the independent Fort Worth Cats in a homestand beginning Friday against the Edinburgh Roadrunners managed by his twin brother, Ozzie.
Canseco addressed the sexual assault accusation on his Twitter account, mentioning the accuser’s name and work place before they were removed.
