Joba is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 17 for his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving over the weekend.
His blood-alcohol content level was 0.134 at the time of his arrest; the legal limit in Nebraska is 0.08.
Joe Giradi has reached out to Joba and had this to say (courtesy of Pete Abe):
“I have spoken to Joba and he made it very clear to me that he made a mistake. We certainly don’t condone his actions, but he is part of the Yankees family and I believe he learned a valuable lesson which he can grow from.”
***P.S.- That picture is of the Wood County Court house in the city that I am going to school in Bowling Green, Ohio.
It is a really, really cool building that was built with old oil money when Bowling Green had a short-lived black-gold boom in the 1890's. The hand's on the clock in the picture are like the second largest working metal clock hands in the nation or something lol.
Anyways, there is your daily dose of worthless knowledge.
