Breaking News Alert: Chargers Wide Receiver Vincent Jackson Arrested For DUI

Just five days before the Chargers take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in a must-win showdown, one of their star players is in trouble with the law. Wide receiver Vincent Jackson was booked at the county jail early Tuesday morning.

News 8 is reporting that Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has been arrested for DUI. Details are still being revealed, however it is believed Jackson was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on Highway 52 near Interstate 805 around 4 a.m. Monday.

Jackson was booked at the county central jail and released Tuesday morning.

Jackson's play was one of the brighter spots to the Chargers season. The wide out had 59 catches for over 1000 yards and 7 touchdowns - clearly his best season with the team.

There's no telling yet what effect his arrest will have on Sunday's game.

REPORT: VINCENT JACKSON ARRESTED FOR DUI
Posted by Mike Florio on January 6, 2009, 3:01 p.m. EST
We’ve been hearing rumblings all afternoon regarding rumors of Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson being arrested for suspicion of DUI.

Now, XTRA 1360 in San Diego is reporting, with confirmation from the authorties, that Jackson has indeed been arrested. (10News.com has a link, too.)

Jackson’s status for Sunday’s playoff game at Pittsburgh currently is unknown.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams do not have the authority to discipline players for alleged criminal conduct involving alcohol or substances of abuse. Instead, the league office has the exclusive ability to mete out punishment after the legal matter is resolved.

This hasn’t stopped teams from imposing discipline, however. During the 2008 season, the Steelers deactivated receiver Santonio Holmes for one game after he was cited for marijuana possession, and the Colts cut defensive tackle Ed Johnson after a similar offense.

With the Chargers likely to be without running back LaDainian Tomlinson (groin) for Sunday’s game, we’d be shocked if the team tries to take a stand on principle over this one — especially since doing so technically runs afoul of the league’s agreement with the union.

Colts shut him down last weekend. Maybe he was depressed.

I picked Vincent Jackson in stlrz d's Playoff Fantasy Football Challenge v2.0. When he had a goose egg in the wild card round, I said that his punishment would be at the hands of James Harrison this Sunday. He is now doing anything and everything he can to avoid having to play in this game, to avoid the wrath of RuthlessBurgher and James Harrison.

Never mind the fact he's out at 4am drinking 5 days before a divisional playoff game. Hell when I'm training for a marathon as an amateur I don't drink for 1 month leading up to the race.

If you faced the prospect of having James Farrior hit you at the 2 mile mark, then Troy Polamalu hit you at the 8 mile mark, then Lawrence Timmons hit you at the 13 mile mark, then LaMarr Woodley hit you at the 19 mile mark, then Ryan Clark hit you at the 22 mile mark, then James Harrison hit you at the 26 mile mark, you would be out drinking at 4:00 a.m. the week of your marathon too. :lol:

If that were the case, then marathons would be mighty short, 'cause he ain't gettin' up from dat. That's why I saved Harrison for the very end of the race. The other guys may hurt you, might even injure you, but Harrison will mame you. Good luck finishing your marathon minus a leg. :Steel

So Goodell will probably use this opportunity to get tough and issue a 1 game suspension to Santonio Holmes for his pot offense.

Voluntarily suspending a guy for a game against a non-conference HOME game is a little different than suspending a guy for a ROAD, second round playoff game.

I get it. Ethics and morals depend on what's at stake. If it's a big game then even though a guy broke the law and caused a distraction to his team he should play.

Gee, I wonder why athletes feel they can get away with everything?

There is no difference. The stakes don't matter. If Norv wants to do the *right* thing he will suspend Jackson.

Obviously V. Jackson's head isn't where it needs to be. If I in the thick of playing in the playoff's and flying across the country in a few days to face the leagues #1 defense, I sure as hell wouldn't be out driving drunk at 2am.

Sure you right! There is no one in the history of driving that has killed anyone by driving and smoking weed. That is unless the pedestrian is standing in the middle of a Taco Bell late night drive-through. 8)
