There goes Mr. Nice Guy

Saw a report this morning that Joba Chamberlin was arrested for DUI, and open alcohol in his car. A lot of what made this guy special was his “nice guy” attitude. Well, there goes that feeling. DUI pretty much destroys any goodwill one might build up.
LINCOLN, Neb. — New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence, speeding and having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle.
Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deborah Collins said Chamberlain was stopped for speeding on U.S. 77 near his hometown of Lincoln at about 1 a.m. Saturday.
Collins said Chamberlain was taken to the Cornhusker Place Detox in Lincoln, which she said is the normal protocol.
Chamberlain was lodged at the center on charges of driving under the influence, having an open container of alcohol and speeding.
Collins said the county attorney likely would file formal charges Monday.
An e-mail sent to Chamberlain’s agent Saturday was not immediately returned.
