Raiders running-back Josh Jacobs was in the headlines last Monday after being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.

The NFL player will not be charged with a DUI, but instead with “failure to exercise due care,” according to Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson.

Although Jacobs had been drinking, he was below the legal limit of alcohol consumption. Jacobs was involved in an early morning single-car crash near East Sunset Road on January 4th.

Full statement from Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson

“The police investigation in the Josh Jacobs’ case revealed that Mr. Jacobs’ blood alcohol level was below the legal limit and therefore DUI charges are not being filed against him. However, based on Mr. Jacobs’ driving behavior, my office has filed a Criminal Complaint for one misdemeanor count of Duty of Driver to Decrease Speed Under Certain Circumstances.”
