Charger Vincent Jackson Pleads Not Guilty To DUI Charges

Posted: Updated:

A San Diego Chargers football player accused of driving drunk for the second time in a little over two years pleaded not guilty today to a pair of misdemeanor charges.

Vincent Terrell Jackson, 25, had his pleas to DUI and having a blood-alcohol level above .08 percent entered via fax by his lawyer, G. Cole Casey.

Jackson, a starting wide receiver, was convicted of the same charges in October 2006. He was on probation at the time of his latest arrest, which occurred on Jan. 6.

The fourth-year pro from the University of Northern Colorado was pulled over around 2:30 a.m. that day while driving eastbound on Highway 52 in a 2008 GMC Sierra.

Officer Brad Baehr of the California Highway Patrol said Jackson agreed to a blood test. He was released on $12,500 bail.

A.J. Smith, the Chargers' general manager, expressed disappointment at the arrest, but Jackson played in the next game, a playoff loss at Pittsburgh.

He caught 59 passes for 1,098 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
