Carlton Fisk Catches New Court Date

The Cooperstown catcher's drunken driving case was postponed again.

It's been a month and a week since baseball immortal Carlton Fisk was allegedly found passed out behind the wheel of his pickup in a New Lenox cornfield, but the former Red and White Sox star has yet to make it into a Joliet courtroom.

Fisk was scheduled for a hearing Thursday morning but his drunken driving case postponed until Dec. 17.

Fisk's , is fighting to get his superstar client's driver's license back and to have evidence ejected from the case.

Fisk, 64, lost his license when he allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer test during his arrest Oct. 22 on charges of driving under the influence, improper lane usage and illegal transportation of alcohol.

White has also filed a motion claiming the New Lenox police illegally arrested Fisk since there was "no reasonable suspicion of criminal activity" to give them cause to pull him over in the first place.

Fisk is fourth on the White Sox's all-time home run list and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000. He owns homes in both New Lenox and Florida.

You all seem to have him convicted and guilty already. It is called circumstantial evidence guys! Prove that he was drunk or had been drinking. Its all circumstantial.....he never took a test so that will toss it out of court because there is no proof. An open container is illegal yes....but doesnt mean he was driving drunk.

PS. Yes he crossed a center line and ended up in a cornfield....but he had a blown tire on his truck. Perhaps that caused him to lose control of the vehicle. Also people can bump their heads and not have a mark there to show it. This may have caused him to act out of sorts as well as caused him to be asleep when he was found. Circumstantial evidence. The plaintiff in this case is the State of Illinois and they have the burden of proof. There is one thing only in this case that can be proven and that is that he had an open container of alcohol in his truck. The rest of the charges cannot be proven. :) If he has a decent attorney he will put forth all of this defense and Mr. Fisk will walk away with the one proven charge....an open container in the vehicle. Now we sit back and see how intelligent his attorney is.

I think Carlton is having some major financial problems. His 12,000 sq. ft. Florida house was allegedly burglarized by someone who too silver coins and was squatting there. The insurance company will be investigating Fisk's whereabouts when the alleged break in occurred and checking if the home is in foreclosure or almost in foreclosure. I am not one who takes pleasure from seeing a famous person fall from grace so I wish Carlton and his family all of the best.
