NJ police in trouble after allegedly giving 100-mph escort to supercar club including NFL's Jacobs
One more established fact: someone has a lot of splainin' to do. Authorities began receiving complaints that very day, with one beginning, "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'...". Others wrote in to say that the cars were weaving across all three lanes and that an elderly driver was so shocked she almost ran off the road. One motorist even labeled it "Death Race 2012."
An NBC New York report indicates that Jacobs called a sergeant in the NJ force that he's friends with and requested the escort. That sergeant and another officer have been put on leave without pay, the station commander has been transferred while his role is investigated. And speaking of investigations, they're coming from everywhere, with even the state Attorney General looking into the matter. At least everyone involved can use history as a guide: police did the same thing on the same road with a different supercar group two years ago.
