DeSean Jackson's abandoned auto found with bullets, marijuana

The two.38-caliber hollow-point bullets found in the 2016 Chevy Silverado, according to a police report (via NFL.com), are legal to possess in Florida, but the marijuana, said to weigh 6.3 grams, is not. "None of what was in the auto was [Jackson's] obviously".

Officers reportedly responded to a single vehicle crash at 2223 West Shore Boulevard on December 24 and found an abandoned Chevy Silverado.

While no arrests have yet been made, Jackson remains under contract in Tampa Bay, having inked a three-year, $33.5 million deal last March. "The incident is being handled", Sports Illustrated reported. The team sits at 4-11 heading into its season finale against New Orleans on Sunday and Jackson himself is now in the midst of what would be the worst season of his career. The police impounded the vehicle.

A spokeswoman for Jackson told NFL Network, which initially reported the story, that a friend had borrowed his auto and that the marijuana and bullets were not Jackson's.

"It was a friend of DeSean's who borrowed his auto while he was out of town".

Jackson reportedly did not accompany the Bucs to that game, as he was out with an ankle injury he had suffered the previous week.

NFL Network, citing an unnamed police source, reported that Jackson "initially declined to cooperate" with police, then named the alleged driver but "declined to assist officers in getting the driver back to the scene". In 2012, Los Angeles Police investigated Jackson for a murder which took place in a building owned or leased by Jackson's family member. "Our understanding is that DeSean has been in contact with authorities and is cooperating with the investigation". In 14 games this season, Jackson has 50 receptions for 668 yards and three touchdowns.
