Joba honored by police, misses court date

Joba Chamberlain missed his court date to attend a Police Athletic League event tonight. Kat O'Brien was there, and delivered some details about the evening:

On his way into the dinner, he talked about trying to turn a negative (his DUI arrest) into a positive by talking to kids about his mistake. He says they might listen more to somebody who has actually had that problem.

Joba also talked about being excited about the upcoming season and the new additions of CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett.
Hopefully Joba keeps doing events like this to ensure himself (and the team) that what happened this off-season won't happen again in the future.

Regarding the court appearance, don't worry. Joba has already filed his plea and requested a waiver in writing.

O'Brien also has quotes from Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal who was on hand representing the Yankees. She really said nothing of importance, but you can what she said in the link above the blockquote.
