An investigation is underway in New Jersey involving a dangerous 100 miles an hour “death race” down the Garden State Parkway amid a State Trooper escort with former NY Giants RB BRANDON JACOBS mentioned as one of the participants.
The Newark Star-Ledger reports that other drivers described a dangerous incident on March 30, when two State Police patrol cars with their emergency lights flashing drove in front of and behind a caravan of dozens of Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and other cars, all heading to Atlantic City driving way too fast, and all with their license plates covered by tape.
Jacobs is believed to be among those drivers in the exotic race car caravan. The Star-Ledger asked Jacobs’ agent, Justin Schulman, whether Jacobs was part of the caravan, and Schulman offered this response: “Brandon was part of a group that went down to Atlantic City on March 30.”
One witness motorist filed a complaint saying, “I had the great pleasure today of nearly being killed by, not one, but two, Lamborghinis traveling in excess of 110 mph in a (New Jersey State Police) escorted ‘caravan’ of approximately 30 exotic vehicles all traveling well over 100 mph.”
The matter is under investigation by NJ State Police according to a spokesman. This may mark the first time in Jacobs career that he has been accused of speeding. Lord knows he never was suspected of doing so with the Giants.
