Canseco Tweets Rape Charge, Is Suspect Of InvestigationBy: Amanda Crum - May 22, 2013
Jose Canseco has a wonderfully demented Twitter account, which boasts over half a million followers. But things got more scary/sad-demented than funny-demented this week when he tweeted out that he’s being accused of rape and is the subject of an investigation.
The ex-baseball great, who made news just yesterday when it was announced he’ll be moving to Texas to play/coach for the Fort Worth Cats, has deleted the tweets above from his account but did post this one today:[timeout]
Lets play truth or dare. I dare susie bell to tell the truth.

Las Vegas police say they won’t reveal any details since it is an open investigation, but they have confirmed that Canseco is indeed a suspect in the case. Now, he’s drawing the ire of many who can’t believe he would post the name of the woman on a social network.[timeout]
Jose Canseco tweeted the name, number and picture of a woman who accused him of rape. All of a sudden the Kardashians’ don’t seem that bad.
