    Albert Belle Is Not Subtle About This Stalking Business

    In case you have forgotten, former slugging psycho Albert Belle has been in jail since May for stalking a woman whom he once paid as a professional escort. Well, yesterday Belle plead guilty to stalking and will be sentenced in a month. He faces a potential sentence of two to eight-and-a-half years for the charge, though the judge could just give him probation. Of course, even if he does that, Belle will have to serve 90 days more, for violating the terms of his bond.

    In his allocution yesterday, Belle admitted not only to making hang-up phone calls to the woman, but also placing a GPS tracking device on her car in January. When she confronted him about it -- "hey, Albert, about that beeping sound my car's always making ..." -- he threatened her. To Belle's eternal credit, his wife has backed him up on this, even claiming that she made all the phone calls.

    Interestingly enough, we haven't heard from Jason Grimsley -- a famous Belle clean-up man -- about his potential culpability in the GPS plot. Maybe he'll say he did it. Though we suppose he has his own problems.
