According to some reports, Jackson lost control of the Corvette Zo6 during a street race with his teammate Marshawn Lynch (aka “Skittles”), who was driving a white Jaguar F-Type.
However, this Kiro7 news report tells us that the rumors are false, and have since been dismissed by the Renton Police Deparment. The RPD has issued Jackson a citation for inattention with a $175 fine for the incident on Tuesday. Following the occurrence, Jackson sent out a tweet to clear up what had happened.
“Thanks to everyone worried about me,” Jackson tweeted. “I lost control of my car. My teammates, including Marshawn, stop to check on me. They weren’t racin’ me.”
While he may not have been racing, he must’ve been traveling at a pretty decent speed to have ripped the stop sign pole from its concrete base. Not to mention the damage done to that poor Z06.
Jackson was uninjured and was able to take part in the Seahawks’ 20 – 3 victory last night; we give our condolences to 49ers fans, ya’ll got spanked. And on the note of the Seattle Seahawks, we have to mention how much we like their carbon fiber helmets.
