Normally I am not the type to run your usual garden variety police blotter items when it comes to jocks and the sports we love. These things get overexposed on ESPN and, personally, I often feel there's a discrepancy in how they're covered.
But I only pass along the news that Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain got busted for DUI in his home state of Nebraska this weekend because of where he was sent as a matter of protocol, according to the Nebraska State Patrol: the Cornhusker Place Detox.
Speeding + open container + 1 AM = bad move, but let's see how this cycles through the legal system. I just think calling the drunk tank in Lincoln the "Cornhusker Place Detox" is frickin' hilarious. I know the state is obsessed with anything and everything Husker, but damn, man. I bet the state would put prisoners in red and white jumpsuits if it could.
