Pawlisz says Fisk was taken to Silver Cross Hospital for treatment. He was released from custody after posting bail and has a Nov. 29 court appearance.

Fisk played 11 seasons with the Red Sox and 13 with the Chicago White Sox.

He has an unlisted number in New Lenox and couldn't be reached for comment.
