Josh Jacobs hasn’t had a good start to 2021. Early on Monday morning, the Las Vegas Raiders running back was arrested for a DUI after a single-car accident.
Luckily, no one was seriously harmed, but Jacobs did come out with an intense cut on his forehead. That was made clear in the mug shot taken by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Chris Maathuis with KLAS-TV shared it on Twitter.
Raiders RB must have been flying through the airport tunnel in Vegas. His skids marks are over 300 feet after hitting the wall 159 more feet…arrested for DUI. Looking at his mug shot… he’s got to learn from this. NO excuse for driving impaired. #RaiderNation pic.twitter.com/rM2wnefPPY

It might be a good thing the season is over for the Raiders — or at least it is for Jacobs. It’s unlikely he would be able to play with that sort of injury, even if he did somehow avoid punishment. We are still waiting to hear what that punishment will be, by the way.
Jacobs is known as a pretty high-character guy, but this was obviously a severe lapse in judgment by the second-year back.
