Chargers WR handcuffed briefly after traffic stop

SAN DIEGO (AP)—Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson(notes) was handcuffed briefly and had his car impounded following a traffic stop on Sunday just a few hours before a playoff loss to the New York Jets, police said.

Det. Gary Hassen said Monday that a traffic officer pulled over Jackson for playing loud music. The player was cited for driving with a suspended license and expired tags. Jackson was briefly handcuffed, which Hassen said is part of standard procedure in such situations.

Jackson has been arrested twice for suspicion of driving under the influence since joining the Chargers. He pleaded guilty in a 2006 case and was on probation when he was arrested again last January. That case has been delayed several times.

“I don’t have a concern about Vincent in general,” coach Norv Turner said.

Jackson avoided reporters by leaving the Chargers’ complex through a back way on Monday. He got into a car and was driven away.

General manager A.J. Smith didn’t return a call seeking comment.

The traffic stop occurred near Chargers headquarters, about two miles north of Qualcomm Stadium. Jackson had to catch a ride to the game with quarterback Philip Rivers(notes).

“Billy and I carpool,” Rivers said, referring to backup quarterback Billy Volek(notes). “Vincent joined in.”
