A well-known Albuquerque Duke who called the city home for a few years, even after he was called up to the Dodgers, is now an accused pedophile. 

Former flamethrowing reliever, John Wetteland, was arrested near Dallas for molesting a child. 

The Dallas Morning News reports it was a 4-year-old relative more than a decade ago. 

Wetteland pitched for the Dukes for parts of three seasons from 89 to 91. 

He was the closer on the mound for the Yankees when they won the World Series in 1996. 

Wetteland is a divorced father of four.
