LINCOLN, Neb. -- New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain's arraignment on drunken-driving charges has been delayed until next month.

The 23-year-old former Nebraska standout was to appear in court Wednesday, but his attorney asked that the arraignment be postponed until Jan. 26.

Chamberlain is charged with first-offense drunken driving and having an open alcohol container. He was pulled over Oct. 18 by the Nebraska State Patrol on the outskirts of Lincoln.

Authorities say his blood-alcohol level was 0.134 percent; the legal limit in Nebraska is 0.08 percent.
