Supplements blamed for Tony LaRussa's DUI charge

Though I feel for Tony LaRussa, manager of the MLB St. Louis Cardinals, you gotta get a chuckle from this story about his recent DUI charge.

Apparently Tony took some "vitamins" from one of his players that turned out to be HGH (human growth hormone). When he was pulled over, LaRussa blamed his state on the vitamins.

The Most Serious Sports News Network thankfully interviewed the arresting officer. His statement said, "“It was obvious Tony was drunk. He had dried vomit on his shirt and a bottle of Jim Beam in the passenger seat. But he kept going on and on about vitamins that he received from one of his players.”

SSN continued, "Despite his tricky defense strategy, LaRussa was sentenced to probation, including fifty hours of community service, for the misdemeanor infraction."

No industry likes to be attacked...but I think this type of attack isn't so bad.
