Jets fourth-round draft pick Chris Herndon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated on Saturday.

The Miami Herald reports that Herndon, who played his college football at the University of Miami, was arrested after crashing his car early Saturday morning in New Jersey.

According to the report, Herndon crashed into a car driven by a 76-year-old man, who suffered an arm injury. It is not clear whether Herndon was injured.

The Jets have confirmed they are aware of the arrest but offered no other comment.

A 6-foot-4, 253-pound tight end, Herndon had 40 catches for 477 yards and four touchdowns last season for the Hurricanes. The Jets took him with the 107th overall pick in this year’s draft.

  1. Ubers can seem so expensive when you’re making millions of dollars… good grief.

    Please bring back the “Days without an Arrest” tracker.

  2. Well, at least he had a long and productive career in NY and led them to several playoff wins before this ignominious end.

  3. The guy is barely on the team for a month and already performing like a true Jet. Is anyone on this team not in trouble with the Law?

  4. 4th round pick huh… I wonder where he fits on the talent vs distraction scale. We will see when the team either releases him or releases the statement that they are aware of the matter and are looking into it.

  5. ah yes, still cranking out geniuses that make quality life decisions at the U.

    Some things don’t change apparently.

  6. a guy from the “U” being arrested..C’on..No way ……Shocked !!!

  7. You know the Jets have feel good players on they’re team big then you have Donaghue, Anderson and now this bonehead, as a Jets fan I implore the front office to get some sort of mentoring program in place for these young men because clearly they’re not mature enough to handle responsibility.

  8. Fantastic typical Jets!

    Lets an alcoholic TE in Austin Seferian-Jenkins walk to JAX instead of paying him 2yr/$10M. Then instead draft a rookie TE in Chris Herndon who might now also have an alcohol problem.

    Way to go!

    Lets go Jets! The suffering continues!

  9. NY needs him. They will find a way to make “strong statements” in the press while still allowing him to play.

    Of course if he isn’t NFL caliber then they will make a big splash about discipline.

    It’s all about $ folks.

  10. If the Jets had any class — and they don’t — they’d cut this kid before he ever sets foot in Giants Stadium.

  11. Driving drunk is not only incredibly stupid but truly selfish too. Sounds like the elderly man he got into an accident with is alright thankfully. This guy should be suspended if not released outright to teach him and other rookies around the league a lesson
