#Raiders on reports of Josh Jacobs DUI arrest: "The Raiders are aware of the situation involving Josh Jacobs. The organization takes these matters seriously and we have no further comment at this time."— Josh Dubow (@JoshDubowAP) January 4, 2021
From Josh Jacobs' lawyers: "No complaint has been filed against our client and there are no blood test results to support a suggestion of impairment. We intend to enter a not guilty plea on behalf of Mr. Jacobs if he is ever charged." - David Z. Chesnoff and Richard A. Schonfeld— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) January 4, 2021
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has been booked for a DUI after crashing his car early on Monday, per ESPN’s Paul Gutierez. The good news is that this was a single car crash and that Jacobs was treated for only minor injuries before being transported to the Clark County Detention Center.
Jacobs and the Raiders played Sunday against the Denver Broncos in Denver, but was reportedly driving under the influence that night in Vegas. This is an incident that will more than likely end up with Jacobs getting a suspension and a fine. As long as this is a first-time offense, which it appears to be, Jacobs would likely see a short suspension of around 1-2 games.
On the season, Jacobs had 273 carries for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns through 15 games, while catching 33 of 45 targets for 238 yards. He finished off the year with a game-winning touchdown in Denver.
