LINCOLN , Neb., May 5 (UPI) -- The mother of New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was arrested in Nebraska on suspicion of dealing drugs, police say.

Authorities in Lincoln, Neb., say Jacqueline Standley was arrested Saturday at her apartment and was charged Monday with delivery of methamphetamine, a Class 2 felony, the Lincoln Journal Star reported.

Judge James Foster set Standley's bond at $5,000 and appointed the public defender's office to represent her. The newspaper said.

Standley was bailed out of jail Monday night.

Court records indicated Standley, 44, is accused delivering a bag of methamphetamine to an undercover officer the night of Feb. 11 at her apartment.

Standley, a Lincoln native, has been estranged from her son and daughter for several years, the Journal Star said.
