The 76-year-old reportedly ran into a curb while drunk in the Phoenix area. He was charged in Maricopa County Court on October 28th. That just happened to be the day he was hired by the White Sox as their new manager.
The White Sox are reportedly aware of the incident. However, they refuse to comment on the matter.
This is his second DUI arrest and charge in his life. He was previously arrested in Jupiter, Florida in 2007 when he fell asleep at a traffic light outside of the St. Louis Cardinals spring training facility.
He pled guilty to the DUI charge in November 2007. La Russa was arrested on March 22, 2007.
He received probation, fines, and served 50 hours of community service in the plea deal in West Palm Beach, Florida. La Russa also received a six-month license suspension.
In addition, he had to attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving Victim Impact Panel and DUI classes.
“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 wrote, according to UPI.
