LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, 22, is not being charged with driving under the influence, according to Clark County’s district attorney.

Instead, he will be charged with “failure to exercise due care.”

“The police investigation in the Josh Jacobs’ case revealed that Mr. Jacobs’ blood alcohol level was below the legal limit and therefore DUI charges are not being filed against him. However, based on Mr. Jacobs’ driving behavior, my office has filed a Criminal Complaint for one misdemeanor count of Duty of Driver to Decrease Speed Under Certain Circumstances,” said Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson.

Jacobs was involved in a single-car crash in the early morning of Jan. 4.
