Pinellas County courts spokesman Ron Stuart said the hearing, originally set for Thursday in traffic court, was rescheduled to June 21.
Swindal had been designated to succeed his father-in-law, George Steinbrenner, as head of the Yankees.
St. Petersburg police arrested Swindal on Feb. 15 and charged him 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. The 52-year-old Swindal has pleaded not guilty.
His wife of 23 years, Jennifer Lynn Steinbrenner Swindal, also wants to end their marriage. She filed divorce papers on March 27 that said their marriage is ``irretrievably broken.'' She also wants to separate her interests in her family's business from his finances.
The couple, with two grown children, separated on Feb. 14, only hours before his arrest. The pending divorce makes it unlikely Swindal will head the team.
In April, Swindal cited ``personal reasons'' for dropping out of the group he founded that is seeking to win the right to run thoroughbred racing in New York. The Steinbrenner family dropped out of the bid a week earlier.
