An NFL assistant coach was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Thursday.
According to the New York Post, New York Jets offensive line coach and run game coordinator John Benton found himself being placed under arrest by State Police in Morristown, New Jersey for a motor vehicle violation. Benton was suspected of being under the influence and arrested on a DUI charge.
The 58-year-old was processed and released, according to a police spokesman.
“We are aware of the situation and have no further comment,” a Jets spokesman said.
Benton is entering his second season with the Jets as the team’s offensive line coach and run game coordinator.
