Apparently Shelley Smith isn’t the only person who has trouble with her balance after a few drinks. Judging by the details of Joba Chamberlain’s DUI arrest from last October as reported in the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, and the dashboard police video obtained by THE SMOKING GUN, the Yankees pitcher either has trouble negotiating the rolling hills of Nebraska on foot, or he was drunk as a skunk.
After being pulled over by an officer in Lincoln, he was asked to walk a straight line as part of his field sobriety test. As you can see in the video, he did pretty well - for the first half. But after that, it’s a stumbling, bumbling mess, as he’s out of control and all over the place. He’s not exactly showing the type of stamina the Yankees hope he has as a starter.
