    The mother of New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain has been arrested on charges of selling methamphetamine to an undercover police officer in February.

    Jacqueline Standley was arrested at her apartment Saturday night, Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs said Monday.

    Beggs said she sold 1 gram of a substance believed to be meth to an officer for $110 on Feb. 11. The substance was confirmed as meth at the state laboratory.

    The 44-year-old Standley was charged Monday with delivery of an exceptionally hazardous drug, a felony. Her bail was set at $5,000 and she was assigned a public defender, whose name was not on her jail record.

    Last month, Chamberlain pleaded guilty to drunken driving and was given nine months probation and a $400 fine for his October arrest.

    In the process, Joba’s mom secured a spot in the Mugshot Hall of Shame.

    Hey, this is no different from the brother of 2008 A.L. MVP Award winner Dustin Pedroia getting busted for one count of oral copulation involving a child under age fourteen.

    You can pick your friends; but, you can’t pick your family.

    Chamberlain will probably get an earful on this when he’s warming up in sundry visiting bullpens of Yankees rivals. But, he’ll be smart to ignore it all – as hard as it may be to block out some drunk yahoo screaming “Your mother is a drug pusher!” at you. As Yankees fans, let’s hope that Joba strong enough to get through this and not let it become something down the line that impacts his career.

      I caught heat for the Kim Mattingly mugshot, so, this does not surprise me. Hey, if someone doesn’t want to see it, don’t hit the link…

      It’s funny how Joba has these surrounding issues like his drunk driving and his mom. Is he a budding Arod? I highly doubt it…. Some people will derive a certain amount of Schadenfreude from his woes, no doubt.The Kim Mattingly mugshot was one ugly ass picture. It made that classic mugshot of Nick Nolte look normal!

      […] half of the 7th inning for the Yankees in relief of Chamberlain. Oddly enough, Coke is a product Joba’s mom doesn’t sell to undercover police officers. Yankee Stadium […]
