The Miami Herald has learned that New York Jets tight end Christopher Herndon IV, a former University of Miami standout picked in the fourth round of April's NFL Draft, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and taken away in handcuffs at the scene of a car accident just before dawn Saturday.


Herndon, 22, was driving a Nissan Armada and hit and totaled a Toyota FJ-40 Land Cruiser owned by Albert Elliott, 76, of Manalapan, New Jersey, at 4:45 a.m. Saturday on West Interstate 80, mile marker 35.4, in Rockaway Township, New Jersey, New Jersey State Police spokesman Jeff Flynn confirmed to the Herald.

Herndon also demolished a railroad motorcar and the attached trailer, said a source close to Elliott.

The source said Elliott sustained a bruised and gashed arm. It is unknown if Herndon was injured.

Can the Jets organization put a clause in player contracts to keep players the f*ck away from Dade County in the off-season?

This was in NJ.  

The DWI that Jets do is really, really bad.  This is not the had one drink too many and tried to drive a few blocks home variety.  This is high speed driving on highways where people get hit and get hurt.  

I would presume these guys get speaches?  

People thought the TE position had depth.  Oh well.

Or maybe these Florida boys shouldn"t come to NJ.  Something in the water?

Well, lets go with Leggett, Wilford, Tomilson, and even if we need Bucky Brooks for now. Herndon probably is missing at least the first few games, assuming he doesn't go to jail. Charges anywhere from criminal neglegence, DWI, etc.  can produce felonies though with a good lawyer those all go down to misdemeanors making them like a ticket. But, in the NFL can still be a like a 4 game suspension.

How is this the Jets Organization fault?   They just drafted this kid out of the U....maybe they (Miami) kept these player issues out of the press, god knows they covered up stuff like this for decades.

I’m just annoyed and thought that any young player has the potential to make bad decisions when new to the NFL and lifestyle and being proactive could help avoid these issues that seem to be reoccurring. I may just be overreacting because I did not want this to be the only Jets news for today.

They also should start these rookie contracts with severe penalties if they get into trouble like this.
