Ex-World Series MVP John Wetteland accused of child rape

But it wasn't a good day former Major League Baseball closer John Wetteland, who was indicted on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child. At the time of the alleged assault, the relative was 4 years old.

It happened twice more in the next two years at Wetteland's home in Bartonville, about 10 miles south of Denton, the accuser told police.

The indictments Thursday in Denton County, north of Dallas-Fort Worth, follow Wetteland's January arrest.

Wetteland was arrested January 14 at his home in Trophy Club for continuous sexual abuse of a minor and released on a $25,000 bond the same day.

Salman Khan attends Saudi Film Festival
Salman was snapped last night at the Mumbai airport as he returned from Saudi Arabia after attending a film festival in Dhahran. They are now in talks and seems like they are all set for the third installment in the Yash Raj Films' successful franchise.

The News has not been able to reach Wetteland for comment, and he does not have an attorney listed in court records.

Wetteland, who was the 1996 World Series MVP for the New York Yankees and remains the Texas Rangers' all-time leader in saves, retired after the 2000 season and was inducted into the Rangers Hall of Fame in 2005. He also pitched for the Dodgers and Expos.

In 2006, he was hired as the Washington Nationals' bullpen coach but was sacked halfway through the season after then-manager Frank Robinson said he'd asked Wetteland several times to get the team's relievers to focus more and reduce their practical jokes.
