Jets' Christopher Herndon charged with DWI

A recent accident on New Jersey's Route 80 led to an arrest for an NFL player. Charged with traffic offenses and drunk driving, Christopher Herndon was not injured in the accident. It is not clear how his position with the Jets will be affected, but it is not uncommon for DWI charges to impact employment.

Police claim that the accident happened shortly before 5 a.m. According to reports, Herndon was heading west when he collided with a vehicle driven by a 76-year-old man. The other man was also towing an antique railroad motorcar on a trailer. Authorities did not indicate which direction the other man was traveling in or whether Herndon struck him from behind or head-on.

The older man's vehicle was totaled in the collision, and he claims that he suffered injuries to both his arm and knee that will require treatment. Responding officers suspected that Herndon was intoxicated and requested that he submit to blood alcohol level testing. They stated that his BAC registered higher than the state's legal limit of .08, but did not release the exact figure.

DWI allegations are not handled lightly in New Jersey. Defendants face potential jail time, hefty fines and the loss of their driving privileges. Convictions can even impact a person's ability to find or retain employment or affect other areas of their lives. Many people can minimize these effects by fighting the charges to their fullest extent during trial court proceedings, while others find that a carefully negotiated plea deal yields the best possible outcome.
