LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- The mother of New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain has been ticketed for allegedly leaving a threatening phone message for another woman.

Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood said 44-year-old Jacqueline Standley was cited Monday on suspicion of disturbing the peace.

Flood said a 28-year-old woman reported that Standley left a threatening message on her cell phone July 27. An officer who listened to the message said Standley told the woman "You'd better disappear. Keep your eyes open."

Flood described the two women as former friends.

Standley has a court hearing set for Sept. 4.

She's also awaiting trial after pleading not guilty on a drug delivery charge. In May, she was accused of selling methamphetamine to an undercover officer.
