Court delay for Winnebago Yankee's DUI charge
The court date for Joba Chamberlain, a member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska who plays for the New York Yankees, was delayed until January 26, 2009, after his attorney asked for a continuance.

Chamberlain, 23, is charged with DUI first-offense and possession of an open alcohol container. Nebraska authorities said his blood-alcohol level was 0.134, more than 1.5 times the state's legal limit of 0.08.

Chamberlain apologized for the October 18 incident. Websites were flooded with anti-Indian sentiments after his arrest.
