LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Raiders player Josh Jacobs won’t face a driving under the influence charge in his single-vehicle crash last week near McCarran International Airport, authorities said Monday.
Blood test results showed Jacobs’ blood-alcohol level did not reach the 0.08% level required to pursue a drunken driving charge, prosecutor Eric Bauman said.
Bauman and Jacobs’ attorneys, Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff, said the 22-year-old running back still has a March 8 court date on a failure to exercise due care traffic violation related to the crash.
The attorneys had said that Jacobs would plead not guilty if he was charged with a crime in the Jan. 4 crash. Chesnoff declined further comment on Monday.
