Every now and then, Jose Canseco can still surprise us. The former MLB slugger has done and said more crazy things than you could imagine over the past several years, but even he has outdone himself this time. On Wednesday, Canseco was pulled over by police while he had a goat in the back seat of his car.
That’s not all. The goat also happened to be wearing a diaper. And there was more than one goat in the car. If you look carefully at the photo above, you can see a black goat in front of the white one.
“Just got pulled over with goats in the car” Canseco wrote on Twitter. “The cop laughed at our poor goats. Awesome.”
Canseco explained himself on Thursday morning — kind of.
Yes everyone my girlfriend Leila &I @ModelLeila bought fainting goats& they were in the car w/diapers so they don't piss and shit everywhere

Actually, that really wasn’t an explanation at all. It’s unclear why police stopped Canseco, but it doesn’t appear it was a big deal. I’m guessing the first thing the cops wanted to do was get away from the smell. That’s probably enough for Jose to get off with just a verbal warning.
