Florida Marlins pitcher Scott Olsen was arrested early Saturday morning in Aventura after refusing to pull over during a traffic stop, police said.

He was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest with violence and fleeing and alluding a police officer.

The late-night arrest came just hours after Olsen made a spirited return to the mound after a two-game suspension for fighting in the dugout with a teammate.

An officer who was running a radar check in the area of Country Club Drive and 191st Street clocked Olsen speeding, said Capt. William Washa, a department spokesman.

''The officer went to pull him over and he refused to stop,'' Washa said.

Olsen, 23, finally stopped his car when he reached his home in Aventura, Washa said.

There, he began fighting with the officers and refused to take a Breathalyzer test, Washa said.

Hours earlier, Olsen allowed just two runs in seven innings, helping the Marlins to a 10-2 victory over the Reds. While he didn't miss a start, Olsen was forced to spend two days away from the club after scuffling with fellow pitcher Sergio Mitre in the dugout Sunday.

Olsen, who has an 8-7 record with a 4.99 ERA this season, is in his third year with the Marlins.

Considered one of the club's emerging forces on the mound, Olsen earns $380,000 this season. He has a career record of 21-18, with a 4.38 ERA.



Now THAT's how you enjoy a win. He is in some deep trouble. He looks like he got tasered in his head.

He fought Migeul Cabrera? That one I didn't hear about.

This guy is a serious head case.

Olsen is a little punk, glad he got caught.

He still has nasty stuff and I would welcome him to the Reds pitching staff any day of the week.
