Nate Hobbs Pleads Guilty to Reckless Driving, DUI Charges Dropped

ABC 7 reports that on Wednesday, January 26, 2021, Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Nate Hobbs pleaded guilty to careless driving after Clark County prosecutors dropped charges of DUI against him.

In a statement, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson’s office said that evidence in the case showed that Hobbs had not been legally impaired when he was arrested on suspicion of DUI earlier this month. 

A blood-alcohol test taken at the time of Hobs’ arrest revealed that Hobbs’ blood-alcohol level was below Nevada’s legal limit of  0.08 percent. 

On January 3, Hobbs was spotted by law enforcement officers driving his Corvette recklessly through a Las Vegas residential neighborhood and was clocked at speeds in excess of 150 miles per hour.

Hobbs is also facing a separate incident from January 16 when Nevada Highway Patrol officers observed him recklessly weaving in and out of the lanes of traffic. He was later stopped and cited for going 100 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone.

Hobbs’ attorney, Richard Schoenfeld, entered a written plea of guilty for one count of the misdemeanor charge of Unlawful Manner of Driving, Careless Driving and has agreed to pay a fine of $685, face a victim impact panel, and to 20 hours of community service. 

If Hobbs fails to complete any part of the agreement made with the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, he will face a 30-day jail sentence.
