It's always fun to see which New York Yankees get in what trouble. This time, Joba Chamberlain's DUI video takes the cake.
As the commenters clearly indicated, field sobriety tests - in New York or California - become a technicality.
In DUI court, cops are asked how the accused did on the FST's but once they smell alcohol and see the driving, plus one's physical symptoms, they're prepared to say if the person is DUI or not.
Then once the accused blows .08% or above, they're still gonna get arrested even if he or she passes the acrobatics or gymnastics (which they never do).
If the cop though the person was driving in a manner that could be described as impaired or drunk, the bowling ball's rolling.
In this video, you can bet his attorney showed how the Yankees pitcher probably passed seventy percent of the field coordination tests!
He didn't do so good heel to toe coming back, at least in a straight line, but once you test yourself completely sober, you see how difficult it is, lawyers accurately maintain.
