Jackson reportedly told the police that a friend took his car without permission.
A car registered to Tampa Bay Buccaneers star wide receiver DeSean Jackson was found by police abandoned with marijuana and hollow-point bullets inside.
Jackson says that a friend took his car without permission.
“It was a friend of DeSean’s who borrowed his car while he was out of town,” Denise White, a representative for Jackson, told NFL Media. “None of what was in the car was his obviously. He’s dealing with the person that was using it without his knowledge privately. The incident is being handled.”
The car, a Chevy Silverado, was found Sunday night by police with the driver nowhere in sight. The car had 6.3 grams of marijuana inside, a misdemeanor offense, along with two .38 caliber hollow-point bullets - bullets that expand upon contact - which are legal in the state of Florida.
The Buccaneers have declined to comment on the matter. Updates to come.
