Tampa Bay Buccaneers star DeSean Jackson might be in a bit of trouble after a truck registered to him crashed and was abandoned about three miles from the team’s facility in Tampa, Florida on Christmas Eve. Six grams of marijuana and two .38 caliber hollow-point bullets were also discovered inside the vehicle at the wreck.
Jackson denied any involvement in the crash after he was summoned to the scene by police for questioning. He also said he was not driving the truck at the time of the accident. He later claimed that a friend had borrowed his car.
A spokesperson for Jackson released a statement on Wednesday that once again denied his involvement. “It was a friend of DeSean’s who borrowed his car while he was out of town without his knowledge,” the spokesperson said. “None of what was in the car was his, obviously.
He’s dealing with the person that was using it without his knowledge privately. The incident is being handled.” Jackson did not immediately confirm that his friend was using the car according to NFL.com. Only after several rounds of questioning, he agreed to reveal his friend’s identity. The Buccaneer’s coach also released a statement confirming Jackson’s cooperation with police.
