Report: Chargers’ Jackson pleads guilty to DUI

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson was sentenced to four days in jail and five years of probation after pleading guilty to a DUI charge, the San Diego City Attorney’s Office told KGTV on Monday night.

Furthermore, Jackson must attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving class, participate in a multiple conviction program and pay a $2,408 fine, KGTV reported.

Jackson has been arrested twice for DUI. He pleaded guilty after the first incident in 2006 and still was on probation when he was arrested again in January 2009.

Jackson also is scheduled for a March 2 hearing for driving with a suspended license before the Chargers’ playoff game against the Jets.

UPDATE: The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Jackson will serve four days in a work-release program, not jail.
