The 52-year-old, according to Denton County jail records, is accused of continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14.

Authorities arrested Wetteland after the Bartonville Police were referred the case by the Texas Department of Family Services.

He forced a relative to perform a sex act on him, according to his arrest-warrant affidavit, beginning in 2004 when the child was 4 years old.

However, due to the nature of the crime and the pending investigation, Dowell declined to share further details, the Associated Press reported. He was the World Series MVP in 1996 and led the American League with 43 saves that same year. The Rangers inducted Wetteland into their Hall of Fame in 2005, and he has been a part of various ceremonies on Opening Day and Hall of Fame weekend. The three-time All-Star closer was 48-45 with 330 saves and a 2.93 ERA from 1989-2000.
