Former Major League Baseball player and Twitter oddity Jose Canseco appears to have live-tweeted the arrival of police at his Las Vegas home to question him as a potential subject in a rape.

Clark County, Nevada District Attorneys confirmed that Canseco was being considered either a person of interest or a suspect, but no charges had been filed as of Wednesday afternoon.

Canseco appears to have revealed the identity of his accuser in a stream of tweets, including a picture of the woman and her phone number. He also said he would be willing to take a polygraph test on national television.

All the tweets have been deleted, but screenshots are included here, with the personal details of the accuser removed.
