Jacqueline Standley, Joba Chamberlain's Mother, Jailed On Meth Suspicions

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. — The mother of New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain is jailed in Nebraska and facing a felony charge after being arrested on suspicion of selling methamphetamine to an undercover police officer in February.

Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs said Monday that 44-year-old Jacqueline Standley was arrested at her apartment Saturday night.

Beggs said she allegedly sold 1 gram of a substance believed to be meth to an uncover officer for $110 on Feb. 11. The substance tested positive for meth in testing at the state laboratory.

She was charged Monday with delivery of an exceptionally hazardous drug. Her bail was set at $5,000, and she was assigned a public defender, whose name was not on her jail record.

Chamberlain found out about the arrest after arriving at Yankee Stadium on Monday night. He said he hadn't spoken with her in a while.

"You've only got one mom, man, and you've got to be thankful for her," he said. "I still love her."
