Once at the station, they determined he was not drunk and he was released 3 hours later. Had he actually been drunk, he would never have been released that quick."

if true, doesn't sound like any big deal at all and nothing that will jeopardize his playing status.
"Jackson was booked into county jail on a misdemeanor charge and released by 6 a.m., a spokesman with the Sheriff's Department said."

They don't book you on a charge unless they have a reason to. And of course he was released, anybody that can post bail is released pending their court date. It's quite possible that he could have still been a little drunk and they'd still have to release him, as long as he had someone (like friend/family or a taxi) taking him home. It's only the belligerent drunks or people who can't post bail that they keep in lockup.

I'm sure he will still be playing though, much like Holmes is still playing after being caught and arrested for simple marijuana possession (for which he was released from the station within the same day pending his court case).

Negative

Holmes was NEVER ARRESTED

He was cited - and the jaywalking ticket was sent in the mail.

nothing wrong with doing that. It's not like you get out of the reading, you just take a blood test at the station which are known to be more accurate.

But Holmes was suspended by the team for exactly one game.

I agree, this sounds like a non issue. Give the guy a break anyways. Was probably stressed and needed to knock a few back while thinking about being pummeled coming across the middle this Sunday.

Tomlin benched Holmes a day before our Colts game because he was "The Guy" in the news.

Don't be "The Guy", that's his rule.


For the last time...

Holmes was NEVER ARRESTED, he was cited for a couple of blunts in a bogus car stop.

His (minor misdemeanor) jaywalking ticket was sent in the mail.
