Hopefully There Weren't Any Stray Animals in the Car


"St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa was arrested Thursday on a drunken driving charge after police said they found him asleep inside his running sport utility vehicle at a stop light.

La Russa gave two breath samples and had a blood alcohol content of 0.093 percent, Jupiter police said in a statement. Florida's legal driving limit is 0.08 percent.

Undercover officers saw La Russa's SUV sitting partially in an intersection around midnight and not moving despite two green lights, police said. Officers knocked on the window and La Russa did not initially respond.

The SUV was in drive and running, with La Russa's foot on the brake, police said. When he woke up, the officers asked him to get out of the SUV. La Russa was cooperative during his arrest, police said."

I only wish he were managing under the influence last October...

[edit] I couldn't resist swiping this from CSTB: "If I had to work in close proximity to Braden Looper and Scott Spiezio, I’m pretty sure I’d be totally fucked up at 4am, too."


Today: Aaron Sele for the Mets, Smoltzie for the Bravos 1:05 on MLB Gameday Audio

Here's hoping Sele gets smoked so there can be no questions about Pelfrey as #5
