New York Yankees v Chicago White Sox

Some spicy Chicago news this evening. According to ESPN, Chicago White Sox manager, Tony La Russa, was charged with a DUI back in February one evening in Phoenix, AZ. This would be LA Russa's second known drunk driving-related arrest as he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI back in 2007 in Jupiter, FL. ESPN reached out to La Russa earlier today to which he said over the phone, "I have nothing to say" then preceded to hang up. The story gets more interesting as a spokesperson for the White Sox says the organization knew of the incident but because it's "an active case, we cannot comment further at this time." Full details of the arrest below.
