First, Joba Chamberlain was arrested for DUI during the off-season. Now, his mother, was recently arrested for selling meth to an undercover officer (a much more severe crime in my book). Jacqueline Standley, 44, was arrested Saturday at her Nebraska apartment on felony charges of selling a gram of methamphetamine to an undercover cop, said police Capt. David Beggs. She was being held on $5,000 cash bail.
An undercover officer purchased speed from Standley in February. While in her apartment, the officer noticed a shrine dedicated to Joba, including news clippings and his many accomplishments.
Joba was raised by his father, Harlan Chamberlain, and has been estranged from his mom for two years.
“She’s still my mom and I still love her,” Joba said. “That’s the long and short of it. You handle it. You’ve only got one mom, man. You have to be thankful for her, love her and pray for her.”
