Loaiza faces three felonies, including the possession of over 20 kilograms of heroin and/or cocaine, the police report states. He is scheduled to be in court on Wednesday and bail has been set at $200,000.
The two-time All-Star finished second in American League Cy Young voting in 2003, went 126-114 during his 14-year career, and made $43.7 million in salary as a pro.
Just a few weeks ago, Loaiza was taking pictures with fans at Sox Fest in Chicago.
