No one's ever accused Tony LaRussa of being asleep at the wheel... the longtime baseball manager has a reputation as a man who doesn't miss a thing. Although he never reached the Fall Classic as a player, he's led five teams to the World Series, winning it all twice, once in each league: the 1989 Oakland A's and the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals.

But his World Series rings didn't count for much when police found him sitting at a green traffic light in Jupiter, Florida... asleep. LaRussa eventually pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and agreed to serve at least six months' probation, pay a $678.50 fine along with 50 hours of community service and a trip through DUI school.
