ESPN reported in early January that the LVMPD received a call that a driver was asleep in a vehicle parked on the exit ramp of a parking garage. The driver, identified as Hobbs, failed a field sobriety test and was transported to the Clark County Detention Center before being booked for DUI.
Hobbs’ attorneys, David Z. Chesnoff and Richard A. Schonfeld, contested the charge a day later, ESPN reports.
“The facts and circumstances related by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to the news media leave serious concerns that this does not qualify as a DUI under Nevada law,” they said regarding the DUI charge.
The 22-year-old Hobbs — a fifth-round pick in last year’s draft out of Illinois — had 74 tackles, a sack and an interception in 16 games this season.
