Sidney Ponson has been detained in his native Aruba on suspicion of assaulting a local judge at a beach on Christmas.
Several people confronted Ponson at a beach yesterday, accusing him of harassing them with his personal watercraft and operating it recklessly, police said. Ponson allegedly struck one of the men in the group several times. That man was later discovered to be a judge. Ponson has not been formally charged but is expected to be arraigned Monday on assault and battery charges.
:kukoo:

:cower: at the thought of Ponson in a bathing suit.

Remember when everyone on this board wanted fatboy Ponson targeted as the top free agent to get last offseason?:D: Whew...did we ever dodge a bullet with that. We could have been locked in to that underachiever for big bucks and would not have had any money to lock up Freddy for 3 years. Sometimes people gotta look at the moves KW DIDN'T make and give him some kudos.

Yeah, and then we'd have stories in the Cubune about Ponson assaulting swimmers and sunbathers on North Ave. beach instead.

The Orioles, in this respect, might be the most cursed franchise in the last 20 years. It seems like they always have terrible luck with their free agent signings.

And true to form, they seem to show interest in Ordonez.

Sidney Ponson will remain in jail in Aruba for up to eight more days while a prosecutor finishes his investigation into assault charges.
Aruba has no bail system. Ponson could be sentenced to up to three months in jail if found guilty of assault, but it's considered more likely that he'll be fined and sentenced to community service. Dec. 29 - 4:30 am et

So, he may be sentenced to community service? How appropriate if he were made to clean the beach every day.

If they really want to punish him, they should sentence him to an hour of cardio a day. :cool:
