New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, speeding, and having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle. Nebraska State Patrol said Chamberlain was stopped for speeding near his hometown of Lincoln at about 1am yesterday. Chamberlain was taken to the Cornhusker Place Detox in Lincoln, which is the normal protocol.
A Nebraska police spokeswoman said the county attorney likely would file formal charges tomorrow. An email sent to Chamberlain's agent yesterday was not immediately returned.
