At the time of his arrest, Jackson was on probation for a 2006 DUI arrest and conviction in San Diego. He eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.
He was placed on five years' probation and ordered not to drive with a measurable amount of alcohol or drugs in his system during that time.
He had a 0.17 when he was arrested. That is A LOT. To put the physiology in perspective for the non-drinkers: at this point you hit slurred speach, confusion, problems in perception and a great decrease in muscle coordination/response time. At about .30 you start hitting coma. That was very irresponsible and dangerous of him to do and is going to cost him legally. Maybe DaBolts was right when he said VJ should have been suspended for this when it happened (during the playoffs.) Nonetheless, this almost certainly will result in a suspension next season.
