Former Tampa Bay Rays player Elijah Dukes arrested in Brandon

Former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes was arrested in his Brandon home Thursday on a warrant charging him with violation of his probation.

Dukes was arrested in February 2012 after police said he tried to eat a bag of marijuana while stopped for a traffic violation. In January, he was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear in court on those charges.

The reasons for this latest warrant were not immediately clear. Dukes remained in the Hillsborough County Jail Friday without bail.

Dukes played for the Rays between 2003 and 2007, and last appeared in Major League Baseball with the Washington Nationals in 2009.

  3. Review: Jason Aldean fires up a country-dude party at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre

    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
