Ex-Astro Everett Arrested For Assault

Carl Everett was arrested late Monday night in Tampa. The 39-year-old is currently being held for assault with a deadly weapon and tampering with a witness. 

According to police, Carl Everett pointed a gun at his wife, Linda. He also broke two cell phones when she tried calling for help. Carl and Linda have been married for 18 years and have three children. But this isn't the first dispute in the Everett house. In 1997, two of Everett's kids were temporarily placed in foster care when suspicions arose of child abuse.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen, or plummeted in Everett's case. Carl Everett had some of his best years with the Astros; he hit .325 with 25 home runs, 108 RBIs, and 27 stolen bases in 1999. He was integral to two of the Astros division titles, but his bad-boy reputation closed the door on his Astros career.

Everett never could manage to stay on one team despite his five-tool talent. His longest tenure with any team was just three years. He played for eight teams in his 14-year career, including All-Star selections in 2000 and 2003. But he was out of the league by 2006, derailed by injuries and an infatuation with dinosaurs: 

"The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex."

And there you have it. Dinosaurs didn't exist because no one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
