    Jackson traffic stop results in 3 charges
    By Brent Schrotenboer, UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

    Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 12:01 a.m.

    SAN DIEGO – Chargers Pro Bowl receiver Vincent Jackson was charged yesterday with two misdemeanors stemming from his traffic stop near team headquarters 3½ hours before the Chargers’ playoff game against the New York Jets on Jan. 17.

    Jackson, 27, faces up to six months in jail and/or a fine of $1,000 in connection with two counts involving driving with a suspended license. The San Diego City Attorney’s Office also charged Jackson with driving with an expired registration, an infraction punishable by a fine.

    San Diego Police said an officer monitoring radar for speed violations heard loud music coming from Jackson’s car on Murphy Canyon Road. It is against the law in California to “operate any sound amplification system which can be heard outside the vehicle from 50 or more feet” when driving, except for certain circumstances. As a result, Jackson was pulled over at 10:01 a.m.

    After checking Jackson’s license and registration and finding neither to be valid, the officer issued Jackson a ticket. Jackson, who had been handcuffed, was released, allowing him to play in the 17-14 loss against the Jets.

    Jackson was not cited for a noise violation.

    Jackson avoided media questions about the incident after the game. On Monday, he spoke about the traffic stop in a radio interview with Darren Smith on XX Sports 1090-AM.

    Jackson called it “just a ticket, just a driving violation.”

    He said that he found it “odd” to be stopped there “on a Sunday morning.”

    “It’s a business corridor, absolutely no traffic. Just a little odd, you know?” Jackson said.

    His license was suspended after his arrest last January on suspicion of drunken driving. At the time of the arrest, he was on five years’ probation for a 2006 conviction on a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge. Jackson sued the Department of Motor Vehicles last year to have his driver’s license suspension set aside while he fought his 2009 DUI case in court. A judge denied the request in September and reimposed the suspension.

    “I’m sure once it’s all said and done, we’ll definitely get the last laugh and hopefully our law enforcement will definitely continue to support us in the way that they have,” Jackson said.

    As for being handcuffed, Jackson said, “I think they handled it poorly. There was no intention on my part to flee the scene, or anything like that. I was being as cooperative as possible.”

    Jackson’s attorney, Cole Casey, said he couldn’t comment on the traffic stop case until he reviewed the evidence.

    “It’s not something I was happy about,” Jackson said in the radio interview. “But again, you know, we don’t expect any kind of special treatment or anything like that. The law is the law, but again, I do think there are some things that could have been a little bit differently.”

    He also said he and teammates “had a few laughs about it in the locker room” and joked that it “might have been first time ever possibly a player couldn’t play in a game, let alone in a playoff game, because of a traffic stop a few hours before.”

    Jackson’s 2009 DUI case is pending. If convicted, he could face jail time and an NFL suspension this fall of one or two games.

    Jackson was added to the Pro Bowl roster this week, replacing Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, who is preparing for the Super Bowl.

    He should be charged just for having the nickname "V-Jack"

    I love how he's shifting the blame to the police. So he found it a little odd to be stopped on a Sunday morning. I guess the police aren't supposed to enforce the law on Sunday mornings.

    People draw attention to themselves. Maybe if Jackson wasn't playing his music so loud he wouldn't have caught the eye of the officer.

    I've heard it been said that Jackson is maturing. Well, if that's the case, how about acting like a professional. Don't play your car stereo so loud that others can hear it, register your car, and don't drive on a suspended driver's license.

    Just my .02.

    The guy needs a personal assistant - I don't know why any pro-athlete wouldn't have someone who would handle this kind of stuff during the football season. For many it's their wives who run the real world stuff, for others it's an attorney/accountant/assistant. I know he's not making major $$ but he's making more than enough to get some part-time help to keep the little stuff like car registration tags in order.

    That said, it seemed to me in his interview with Darren Smith that he wasn't going to admit wrong doing not b/c he's unwilling to take responsibility but b/c he knew charges were pending and any admission of guilt in anyway could be used against him (right Loren? :unsure:) since he's fighting these and other charges.

    He's a dummy for driving w/expired tags, I'm surprised that his suspended license didn't allow for him to drive to work tho b/c I always thought that was a common exception...

    Regarding the cops... he has always maintained since his 2nd stop that he was treated poorly by the police and even sued them - why wouldn't a cop want to find a reason to go after him? Not that they did, but I don't find it unreasonable cause I've dealt with some pretty ****** cops myself before.

    :icon_shrug: we'll know more in a few months as things shake out I guess.

    Dumber, yes. But not by much. She more than makes up for it by being able to function as an adult, more than I can say about my sister in law.
