Joba the Drunk for President

Yanks' Chamberlain held for DUI, speeding; formal charges due Monday

LINCOLN, Neb. -- New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence, speeding and having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle. Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deborah Collins said Chamberlain was stopped for speeding on U.S. 77 near his hometown of Lincoln at about 1 a.m. Saturday. Collins said Chamberlain was taken to the Cornhusker Place Detox in Lincoln, which she said is the normal protocol.

Chamberlain was lodged at the center on charges of driving under the influence, having an open container of alcohol and speeding. Collins said the county attorney likely would file formal charges Monday. An e-mail sent to Chamberlain's agent Saturday was not immediately returned
MY TAKE ON THIS: Can't be a slow day for baseball news. I guess this will be blown out of proportion and looks like some sportswriter just wants to upstage the Red Sox. Kind of funny though especially the part about emailing his agent. Should have emailed his mother,
