Ex-MLB players Octavio Dotel and Luis Castillo have reportedly been arrested in the Dominican Republic as part of a major drug trafficking investigation, the country’s attorney general announced Tuesday.
The Dominican newspaper Diario Libre reports that Dotel and Castillo were among more than a dozen arrested as hundreds of Dominican authorities conducted a raid on properties owned by César Emilio Peralta (known as César the Abuser), who was not captured by authorities.
Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez then said in a press conference that Peralta led a drug trafficking and money laundering ring that fed drugs from the Dominican Republic to the U.S. — and used baseball players to help him.
