File photo of Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson who was released by the club.
Baltimore Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson, shown in this file photo taken at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland June 18, 2005, was placed on unconditional release waivers by the club September 1, 2005, for the purpose of voiding his contract for conduct "which violated the terms of his Uniform Players Contract" the team said in a statement. Ponson was arrested a week ago on a drunken driving charge. He was also charged last January for driving under the influence in Florida, a case that has not yet been resolved, and also spent 11 days in an Aruban jail for his involvement in a fight on a beach in his native country on December 25.
