Raiders rookie CB Nate Hobbs was arrested and charged for misdemeanor DUI early Monday morning. According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Hobbs was found asleep at the wheel in a hotel parking garage and was arrested after failing field sobriety tests.

Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia spoke with the media Monday. He said he had just recently been made aware of Hobbs’ arrest and opened his press conference with a short statement about the incident.

“Nate Hobbs was involved in an incident,” interim head coach Rich Bisaccia said Monday. “We’re just trying to collect as much information as we possibly can on what exactly happened and what the situation is and where he’s at with that.”

Although there is little information available as of now regarding Hobbs’ arrest, the incident is particularly troubling because of the highly-publicized DUI incident involving former Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III in November that left a woman and her dog dead. Ruggs III was promptly released following his arrest.

As of now, there is no information available regarding whether Hobbs will face punishment from the team or from the NFL.

Hobbs has had a phenomenal rookie season after being drafted in the fifth round by the Raiders. He has carried a big workload operating as the starting slot corner and has become one of the best players in the Raiders secondary. CB Keisean Nixon is the primary backup slot corner.
