Pineda DUI

Ah, a court hearing for a DUI is just as American as apple pie and baseball.

Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was all, “no contest”, at a hearing yesterday for his DUI. This took place in Tampa, where he was arrested for a DUI in Florida back in August 2012.

Pineda will have to perform 50 hours of community service, have 1 year probation, attend DUI school and pay a $500 fine. He’s expected to return to the field in June.

Let’s hope this smashed-lete won’t strike out again in the future.  Athletes are heroes, remember? Ha! Yeah right.
