When you’re an NFL rookie and you just signed a multi-year contract for $3.1 million, calling an Uber or Lyft is pretty much the only move when it’s late at night and you’ve been drinking.
New York Jets fourth-round pick Chris Herndon didn’t make that move.
Herndon, 22, now appears subjected to league discipline after he reportedly crashed his Nissan Altima while intoxicated, all while injuring a 76-year-old man.
ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini tweeted that Herndon was taken to police barracks near the crash site, where he failed a breathalyzer test. He was processed by police and later released.
It is unknown if Herndon was injured.
Citing a source, the Herald wrote that Herndon also demolished a railroad motorcar and an attached trailer.
