Raiders’ Nate Hobbs cited for reckless driving after DUI arrest

Updated January 21, 2022 - 7:26 pm

Raiders cornerback Nate Hobbs, who was recently arrested on a DUI charge, has received a reckless driving citation from the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Highway Patrol spokeswoman Ashlee Wellman said Friday that a citation was issued to Hobbs, but she provided no further information on the date and time or the nature of the infraction Hobbs is accused of. A request for more details from the agency was pending.

Las Vegas Justice Court records show that Hobbs received a misdemeanor citation of “reckless driving/disregard safety.” The date of the citation is listed as Sunday, and it was filed with the court Thursday.

Previously, Hobbs, 22, was arrested by Las Vegas police at 4:09 a.m. Jan. 3 in a parking garage at The Cromwell on the Strip, then booked at the Clark County Detention Center on a misdemeanor count of DUI.

Hobbs’ attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, issued a statement Friday afternoon.

“We understand that a traffic citation was issued to Mr. Hobbs, and we will address it in the court system,” the statement read.
