Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain apologized for “an error in judgment” on Sunday. The former Husker was arrested early Saturday in Nebraska on suspicion of driving under the influence, speeding and having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle.
Chamberlain said in a statement released by his agent, Randy Hendricks.
“I want to apologize to the New York Yankees and the fans for an error in judgment and for putting myself in a difficult situation. I intend to properly resolve this situation and do not intend to be in such a situation again. My goal is to focus on pitching for the Yankees in the 2009 season.”
