Is the Marlins Brass really out to lunch?

If he were to return to Greensboro, he could face arrest in connection with felony counts of heroin possession and possession of a stolen vehicle. Arrested on two consecutive days in October 2006, Allison was offered a chance to enter Guilford County Drug Court, a diversionary program that grants first offenders a reprieve from jail time if they successfully complete rehabilitation. He failed to appear at a scheduled Dec. 28 hearing that was to determine his eligibility for the program, and Judge Susan Burch issued a warrant for Allison's arrest.

 

Although he admitted to two nearly fatal overdoses on heroin, the most recent of which was last summer, Allison has not been convicted of a crime anywhere and was therefore a candidate for the drug court.

 

The Greensboro Police Department has kept the warrant active since it was issued.

 

"If we have paperwork -- normally a warrant -- and we know where that person is (in the area), we'll go and pick them up," said Lt. Brian Cheek, a department spokesman. "We've done this with rock stars and rap stars and a lot of people."

 

Allison, 22, has remained free even though his whereabouts have been publicly identified at least twice. In a June 4 interview with the Boston Herald, Allison said he had returned to his childhood home of Peabody and had found work as a pitching instructor at a friend's baseball facility. He said he began to turn his life around on or about Dec. 4, 2006. Three weeks after that, he missed the scheduled court appearance in Greensboro.

 

The Palm Beach Post reported Wednesday that Allison started working out with other Marlins minor leaguers late last month and was tentatively scheduled to pitch Saturday at Jupiter, Fla.

 

The Marlins have declined to say if they are aware of the outstanding warrants.

I mean seriously? Anyone who remotely follows the minor league knew he had an outstanding warrant stemming from that stolen car back in October.

How about the more exciting news is that he's pitching Saturday.

 

I'm assuming it's on the B fields...?

 

 

Allison isnt even on the Gulf Coast League roster yet , so he didnt pitch in the game, he threw a bullpen session for a few minutes, and then ran some poles on an adjacent field.

 

GCL Marlins lost 5-4 in 10 innings
