Pittsburgh Pirates President Faces DUI Charges

The Pittsburgh Pirates have not had a whole lot of great seasons in the past decade and this season is already starting off on a sour note.

President Frank Coonelly faces four drunk driving related charges following an incident Dec. 22 in Pittsburgh.

Coonelly was charged in Ross Township, P.a. with one count each of drunk driving, careless driving, driving the wrong way, and driving with a blood-alcohol content level of .08 which is twice the state’s legal limit.

Coonelly has been the Pirates’ president since 2007 and there is no indication as of yet that he will be dismissed of his duties.
