Vincent Jackson was arrested again before playoff game

On Sunday, we posted an item regarding the status of Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson’s legal entanglement from the days preceding the team’s 2008 division-round loss to the Steelers.

And, as luck would have it, Jackson encountered another legal entanglement in the hours preceding the team’s 2009 division-round loss to the Jets.

According to, Jackson was pulled over by a San Diego police officer on Sunday.

A department spokesman said the officer stopped Jackson because his music was too loud.

The officer cited Jackson for having expired vehicle tags and driving with a suspended license, a misdemeanor under California law. Jackson was handcuffed “for a short period of time,” but the officer opted not to take Jackson to jail.

Still, Jackson’s car was impounded, and he hitched a ride to the game with quarterback Philip Rivers.

Jackson’s DUI charges from January 2008 are still pending.

UPDATE: As a reader points out, Jackson’s sentence apparently was banishment to Revis Island. I wish I’d thought of that one.
