Nebraska walk-on cited for drunk driving

Don't Drink & Drive

Hey, if a punter/kicker counts, so does a walk-on defensive tackle.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Nebraska walk-on Justin Jackson was ticketed early Sunday morning for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.  He was also cited for minor consumption and negligent driving, apparently because he used a median as an on-ramp.

Police observed Jackson pulling his black Ford F-150 out of a parking lot, then driving it over the center median and proceeding westbound on Cornhusker Highway, according to a report. Jackson, 20, was stopped by police at 2:08 a.m. near Adams Street and Cornhusker Highway.

Jackson, who admitted to police he had been drinking at a local bar, had a BAC of .12; the legal limit is .08.

The sophomore played in just two games in 2010.
