World Series-winning manager Tony LaRussa is staying on task with his Cardinals this season by getting drunk, trying to drive home, and passing out at a stoplight. The crack police in Palm Beach County booked him for DUI.
Police found La Russa slumped over in the driver's seat of the SUV, which was in drive and running. La Russa had his foot on the brake and did not respond to knocks on the window, police said. He finally woke up and parked the car…
La Russa was sent to the Palm Beach County Jail, where he provided breath samples, which measured at a .093 blood alcohol level, police said. Florida's legal driving limit is 0.08%.
Wow, what a leader of men. So far this offseason Tony's been turned away from nightclubs and gotten a tribal tattoo. And now he passes out at a stoplight with a .093 BAL. Congratulations, St. Louis, your manager is a college sophomore.
Seriously: who passes out at .093? I sure as hell wouldn't. That's when I start to become good-looking and charming.
