CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -A hearing on a driving under the influence charge against New York Yankees executive Steve Swindal has been postponed for at least a month.
Pinellas County courts spokesman Ron Stuart said Wednesday that the hearing, originally set for Thursday, was rescheduled to May 10.
The 52-year-old Swindal, who had been designated as George Steinbrenner's successor as head of the Yankees, was arrested by St. Petersburg police on Feb. 15 and charged with driving under the influence, a misdemeanor. Police said he was weaving and driving 61 mph in a 35 mph zone when he was pulled over. Swindal has pleaded not guilty.
He is also facing a divorce filing from his wife of 23 years, Jennifer Lynn Steinbrenner Swindal. She filed divorce papers that said their marriage is ``irretrievably broken.'' She also wants to separate her interests in her famous family's business from his finances.
The couple, who have two grown children, separated on Feb. 14. The pending divorce makes it unlikely Swindal will head the team.
