San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was pulled over by a San Diego police officer several hours before the team's AFC playoff game against the New York Jets on Sunday, 10News reported.
San Diego Police Department spokesman Gary Hassen confirmed the officer pulled over Jackson's vehicle as he was heading to the team's Murphy Canyon-area facility early
Sunday morning because it was playing loud music. The officer reported Jackson's vehicle tags were expired and learned Jackson was driving on a suspended license, which is a misdemeanor.
According to Hassen, Jackson was taken out of his vehicle and handcuffed for a short period of time. With the choice to take Jackson to jail or cite him, the officer cited the wide receiver and impounded his vehicle, Hassen said.
Sources told 10News Jackson was given a ride to Qualcomm Stadium by quarterback Philip Rivers.
