That was when Josie chimed in, saying her father did the same and sold merch with his mugshot. Then, one of the co-hosts, Kyle, asked the model what Jose did to go to jail.
There was an awkward moment since Josie did not know how to respond to that. But later, she revealed her father went to jail for seven months after beating a guy up.
He did so to protect a girl since Josie claimed the guy had his hands up the girl's skirt. Along with Josie's father, his twin brother, Ozzie Canseco, was also responsible for the battery charge.
According to reports, the fight happened in 2001 at a Miami Beach nightclub. The twins claimed they got involved since the man allegedly assaulted Jose's friend.
Later, the Canseco twins pled guilty to the aggravated battery charges and received community service and probation.
Jose Canseco and Drugs
Jose beating up someone and pleading guilty is not the only time he has had trouble with the law. He has a long history of such charges and even some related to drugs.
The baseball player is very open about his use of steroids.
This fact first made headlines in 2005 after he admitted to using drugs alongside other players in his book: Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big.
The revelation was so big that it even caught the interest of Congress. In 2008, he was sentenced for drug smuggling.
He pleaded guilty to going to a pharmacy in Tijuana and looking for a performance-enhancing drug to boost his testosterone level. Other than the cases related to drugs, Jose has been in jail for other issues.
This includes carrying unregistered pistols and beating his wives, Esther Canseco, and Jessica Canseco.
