Nixon, 54, has been charged with felony possession of cocaine after he was arrested along I-575 near the Airport Road interchange.
Former Atlanta Brave Otis Nixon is in trouble with the law. The former center-fielder for the Braves was arrested just after midnight on Saturday for felony possession of cocaine and possession of a drug-related object, according to a police report from the Cherokee Sheriff's Office.

The Atlanta Braves make a deal for Justin Upton and others. What are your thoughts?
Ah, time for some baseball hot stove talk, with help from the Atlanta Braves. Seems the Braves made a big trade Thursday (Jan. 24) that could determine a replacement for retired All Star Chipper Jones. The Braves' signature acquisition Thursday was outfielder Justin Upton from the Arizona Diamondbacks, in exchange for utility player Martin Prado and pitcher Randall Delgado, among others. Who will replace Chipper Jones at third for Atlanta? How will the Upton brothers fare on the same team? Share your thoughts in the comments below. However, the deal also brought third baseman Chris Johnson to Atlanta, and that's the other interesting part.

The Bulldogs could coast to an SEC East title - if they can get past the undefeated Gators.
So, in their last two games, Georgia got trounced by South Carolina and barely squeaked by the unimpressive Kentucky Wildcats. And yet, Bulldogs faithful are still talking about a shot at the SEC championship. Why? Because the Bulldogs have only one loss, and if they beat Florida on Saturday, a relatively gentle schedule gives them an opportunity to cruise to the SEC East title. The schedule is so favorable, an AP reporter suggested that Georgia "might be the most fortunate team in the nation." It might be better to be lucky than good, but are the Bulldogs good enough to beat a Florida team that wiped the floor with South Carolina, the team that wiped the floor with Georgia? Well, we know that college football isn't a linear proposition, …
