In all reality, this isn’t the biggest problem the Yankees face, but it is one more distraction that they don’t need. The good news? Pitcher Joba Chamberlain is pretty much estranged from his mom and hasn’t seen her in almost two years, so it’s not like she did this from the back porch of his house. The bad news? Check out her mug shot. You can pick up your bottle of eye bleach at the bottom of the story.
The estranged mother of Yankees star pitcher Joba Chamberlain has been busted for allegedly dealing drugs, authorities said. Jacqueline Standley, 44, was arrested Saturday at her Nebraska apartment on felony charges of selling a gram of methamphetamine to an undercover cop, said police Capt. David Beggs.
Standley was being held Monday night on $5,000 bail after being arraigned in the same Lincoln courtroom where her famous son pleaded guilty last month to drunken-driving charges. Beggs said an undercover cop paid Standley $110 for the small plastic bag of speed.
