Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford will not face DUI charges resulting from a March 14 traffic stop after the Alameda County (Calif.) District Attorney's Office decided Thursday against pursuing the case.
Ford failed a field sobriety test and was arrested after officers initially pulled him over because of dark-tinted windows in his vehicle and for speeding. They then noticed that he smelled of alcohol.
"The District Attorney's Office has declined to file charges against Jacoby Ford," said Teresa Drenick, a District Attorney spokeswoman.
Because the chargers were dropped, it's unlikely that Ford, 25, will face punishment from the NFL.
"The Raiders organization is aware of the situation involving Jacoby Ford and takes matters such as this very seriously," a Raiders spokesman told the Contra Costa Times.
Ford missed the entire 2012 season with a left foot injury.
