LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain's arraignment on a drunken-driving charge has been rescheduled a fourth time.

Chamberlain's attorney filed another continuance motion in Lancaster County Court. The hearing, scheduled for Tuesday, has been reset for Wednesday morning.

Chamberlain, who played for Nebraska in college, was scheduled to pitch in Florida on Tuesday.

Chamberlain was granted continuances earlier this month, and in December and January.

He 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.
