Cardinal’s Manager La Russa Asks for DUI Trial by Jury

By Mary Ann

St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa filed a demand for a trial by jury following his DUI arrest in Jupiter, Florida. La Russa was arrested in March after being discovered asleep at a traffic light.

According to his arrest report, he had a blood alcohol level of 0.093 percent. Florida’s BAC limit for DUI is 0.08 percent.

La Russa faces up to six months in jail and a $500 fine. It would be surprising if La Russa’s case actually went to trial.
