A high-speed police escort for dozens of luxury sports cars, one of which was reportedly driven by Brandon Jacobs, has resulted in two New Jersey state troopers being suspended without pay.
An investigation began after witnesses complained that two State Police cars escorted Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches driving over 100 miles an hour on March 30. Over the weekend the Newark Star-Ledger reported that Jacobs was one of the drivers of those cars, and today the New Jersey Attorney General announced that the two cops who escorted the cars were suspended.
“We will not tolerate any conduct by a member of the State Police that puts the public in jeopardy, as this unauthorized caravan had the potential to do,” New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said. “We are thoroughly investigating this incident, and those responsible will face serious discipline.”
Jacobs’ agent, Justin Schulman, told the Star-Ledger, “Brandon did go to [Atlantic City] that day but wasn’t aware of the details of the police escort.” Jacobs, who played his entire career in New Jersey with the Giants before signing with the 49ers this offseason, has a large collection of sports cars and has often discussed his love of driving fast cars.
