Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will not be charged with driving under the influence after a blood test indicated his blood-alcohol content was below the legal limit in Nevada, a prosecutor with the Clark County district attorney’s office said Monday.

“His blood-alcohol level was below 0.08 within two hours at the time of his driving,” said Chief Deputy District Attorney Eric Bauman.

Jacobs was involved in a single-car crash early Jan. 4. Police said Jacobs, 22, was found behind the wheel of a 2019 Acura NSX that crashed in the tunnel connector at McCarran International Airport at 4:42 a.m. Police had said they smelled alcohol on Jacobs.

Bauman also said police were unable to conduct field sobriety tests shortly after the crash because Jacobs was receiving medical treatment. Jacobs suffered a large gash to his forehead in the crash.
