Chargers receiver arrested for drink driving

2:56 pm on 7 January 2009

San Diego Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol today, just five days before his teams key National Football League playoff game.

The police booked Jackson for a misdemeanour drink driving charge before his release.

The Chargers ousted Indianapolis last weekend in a first-round home playoff game, and a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday would move the Chargers one win away from a spot in next month's Super Bowl.
