San Diego Police Department spokesman Gary Hassen confirmed the officer pulled over Jackson's vehicle as he was heading to the team's Murphy Canyon-area facility early Sunday morning because he was playing loud music. The officer reported Jackson's vehicle tags were expired and learned Jackson was driving on a suspended license, which is a misdemeanor.Jackson has been convicted once and charged a second time with driving under the influence.
According to Hassen, Jackson was taken out of his vehicle and handcuffed for a short period of time. With the choice to take Jackson to jail or cite him, the officer cited the wide receiver and impounded his vehicle, Hassen said.
