Back in 1991, Belle became so upset with a fan who heckled him, saying, "Keg party at my house, Joey"—a reference to his time in alcohol rehab as well as his old nickname—that he struck the individual with a baseball which he threw into the stands. Also, when Belle was caught using a corked bat, he didn't just own up to it. He attempted to get his bat back by making teammate Jason Grimsley retrieve it. The end result was a seven-game suspension.

Off the field, Belle embodied his "Snapper" nickname, too. Once upon a time, Belle chased down and ran over one of the trick-or-treaters with his SUV after they egged his house. Sounds about right.
