Las Vegas Raiders defensive back Nate Hobbs has been arrested.

According to TMZ, Hobbs was arrested early Monday morning on a misdemeanor DUI after being found in his car at The Cromwell Hotel. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The talented football player “did not do well in field sobriety tests,” according to the same report.

The police later released a statement confirming his arrest, and noted that he didn’t pass the field sobriety test.

As always, Hobbs has every right in the world to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court. That’s our system here in America, and we should all be thankful for it.

Having said that, if Hobbs was truly intoxicated in his vehicle, there’s simply no excuse for it. As a society, we can’t tolerate it, especially after what happened with his former teammate Henry Ruggs. Granted, it sounds like he wasn’t driving around, but it’s still not great. If you’ve consumed alcohol, find a different way to get around.

I’ve been to Vegas several times. I can promise you that there are Ubers all over the place. Of all the cities you should never have to worry about drunk driving, it’s Vegas.

Hopefully the police can get to the bottom of what happened, but it’s a very tough look right now for the young NFL player.
