Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police confirmed to KVVU-TV.
Jacobs, 22, was arrested near McCarran Airport in Las Vegas just hours after the Raiders won their regular-season finale against the Denver Broncos. Police responded to a report of a single-car accident at 4:42 a.m. and found Jacobs, who had sustained minor injuries from the collision. They suspected he was “impaired” and he was booked for driving under the influence after he was treated for his injuries at a local hospital.
