Eight months after police in Jupiter, Florida found him asleep at the wheel of his running SUV at a red light, stinking of alcohol, St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa pleaded guilty to driving under the influence on Wednesday.
According to the Associated Press,Â La Russa will serve at least six months’ probation, pay a $678.50 fine, complete DUI school and any recommended treatment and complete 50 hours of community service. “I accept full responsibility for my conduct, and assure everyone that I have learned a very valuable lesson and that this will never occur again,” La Russa said in a statement released by his attorney, David Roth.
Good move by Tony, getting rid of Sammy Hagar. I hear he’s a lousy attorney.Â
