Joba's Blood Alcohol Level Nearly Twice Legal Limit

Word out of Lincoln, Nebraska today is that Joba Chamberlain's blood alcohol level was 0.134 at the time of his arrest early Saturday morning, nearly double the state's legal limit of 0.08. A court date of December 17 has been set for the right-hander, who apologized over the weekend.
"I want to apologize to the New York Yankees and the fans for an error in judgment and for putting myself in a difficult situation," said Chamberlain in a statement released by his agent, Randy Hendricks. "I intend to properly resolve this situation, and do not intend to be in such a situation again. My goal is to focus on pitching for the Yankees in the 2009 season."
Perhaps Joba should be concentrating on driving drunk or having an open container in his car. You would think after seeing the Jim Leyritz tragedy unfold earlier this year, some brains would be used.

Hank Steinbrenner, for one, is behind is star pitcher.
“He knows he made a mistake, and he’s come out and said that,” Steinbrenner said Monday in New York. “We’ve always said we’re an extended family, the Yankee family, and will support him 100 percent.”
Wonder if Hank would feel the same way if it were Melky Cabrera or Cody Ransom.
