The Chicago White Sox ended Tony La Russa's nine year absence from the dugout by hiring the 76-year-old to be their manager at the end of October. The day before he was hired, the Hall of Famer was charged with DUI.
La Russa was arrested back in February on suspicion of driving under the influence. He allegedly crashed his car into a Phoenix-area curb prior to the arrest.

The hiring of La Russa by the White Sox was surprising to say the least. Given this latest news it's even more surprising.
At the same time it's perfect. The MLB needs more throwback managers who are mixing things up off the field. La Russa's off to a hot start as far as that's concerned.
