Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs Arrested on DUI Charge

by Joe Rutland

Las Vegas Raiders star running back Josh Jacobs was arrested on a DUI charge hours after a Raiders’ 32-31 win on Sunday against Denver.

Jacobs, 22, found himself in cuffs after a single-vehicle collision near the McCarran Airport Connector and East Sunset Road in Las Vegas. This is per a report from Las Vegas Metro Police and ESPN.

Immediately, Jones went to a nearby hospital after suffering minor injuries. Josh Jacobs, after his release from the hospital, went to the Clark County Detention Center and booked for a DUI, the LVMPD’s public information officer said.

On Monday, David Z. Chesnoff and Richard A. Schonfeld, Jacobs’ attorneys, said, “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.”

In Sunday’s victory, Jacobs had 15 carries for 89 yards and scored two touchdowns. This was Jacobs’ second year in the National Football League after a stellar career at Alabama.

Josh Jacobs Trolls Fantasy Owners With ‘Fake Update’

Josh Jacobs spent time trolling his fantasy owners ahead of the Raiders’ game against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this season.

The Raiders’ running back posted a sudden update to his Instagram story before playing the Colts on game day. In it, he told fans that he wasn’t playing in today’s game. That is despite his listing as “active” for the game. Jacobs puts laughing emojis at the end of his statement.

He appears to have been joking with the fantasy community. Jacobs went through pre-game warmups with the first team.

However, some fantasy owners in their leagues’ playoffs may not have found the joke to be that funny. ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter took note of Jacobs’ confusing update. He posted the update to his official Twitter account.
