Janikowski cited for DUI

Raiders kicker Janikowski cited for driving under the influence

October 4, 2002


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has been cited for suspicion of driving under the influence, adding another chapter in his history of run-ins with the law. ADVERTISEMENT


Janikowski was stopped for speeding in Oakland early Wednesday, police said Friday.

The officer smelled alcohol on Janikowski, and he failed a sobriety test. Police said his blood-alcohol level registered 0.20, more than twice the legal limit.

The case was sent to the Alameda County district attorney's office. Officials there did not immediately return calls Friday. The Oakland Raiders refused comment.

Janikowski, Oakland's first round pick in 2000, helped Florida State win the national championship in 1999 with his booming kicks.

This is the latest in a line of troubles for Janikowski. A year ago, Janikowski required five stitches in his head after falling on a San Francisco dance floor.

In April 2001, he was acquitted of charges of having GHB, the so-called date-rape drug. In June 2000, Janikowski was acquitted on a charge he offered a Tallahassee, Fla., police officer $300 to release his roommate after an argument with a bouncer who wouldn't let him into a nightclub.

Janikowski's contract includes a clause that would force him to pay back about $25,000 for every game he misses due to suspension. The clause was added because of his run-ins with the law.

Well this was bound to happen again...what are the odds that he can beat this one too.

Yeah I thought there was a chance of him getting deported when he was caught with GHB, the date-rape drug.

This is a non-story as far as I'm concerned. I'd be more surprised if a day went by where he was sober or not doing some illegal narcotic.

Not a surprise... Someone check him for steroids, please!

(at least then he would get a "slap on the wrist" )
