06:29 AM ET 10.06 | Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera -- under fire for a weekend of bad baseball and what police describe as heavy drinking at Birmingham's Townsend Hotel and a scuffle with his wife -- now has to answer for a second bizarre incident at the Townsend. A police report released late Monday quotes witnesses as saying an erratic Cabrera taunted an overweight, 15-year-old boy at the hotel in late August and had to be escorted out. One witness said Cabrera "acted as if he was on some drug" during the outburst; witnesses said the confrontation grew so heated that he challenged the teen's table to a fight outside and implied he had a gun there.
