There was a lot of dunking going on Monday morning, as people still defending Tony La Russa to the death were made to believe that his second DUI charged had been dropped in Arizona stemming from his February arrest.

However, it turns out there was a procedural mistake in the courts.

Initially, it seemed as though La Russa was off the hook as the NBC affiliate in Arizona reported that charges had been dismissed.

Hmmm, no reason given? Well, that’s because it was only part of the story. It turns out that the charged were technically dropped because the case was filed in the wrong court. La Russa is still facing a DUI charge.

So no, Jerry Reinsdorf didn’t drop some bags of money at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to get his buddy out of trouble.
