Jets linebacker Dylan Donahue was arrested and charged with DWI and reckless driving on early Monday morning when he drove the wrong way inside the Lincoln Tunnel and crashed into a jitney bus, according to a police report.
Donahue, 25, was seen by a Port Authority cop in New Jersey driving around traffic cones and into the center tube, where traffic was going westbound, prior to crashing his Dodger Charger Hellcat head-on with the bus at around 2 a.m. inside the tunnel.
Four of the 15 passengers on the bus sustained minor injuries and were taken to Hoboken University Medical Center.
Donahue, a fifth-round draft pick for the Jets in 2017, failed both a sobriety and Breathalyzer test and was placed under arrest.
Mahmood Suleiman, 21, was in the passenger seat of Donahue’s car and was also arrested for disorderly conduct.
Donahue played in four games this season with the Jets, mostly on special teams, before a season-ending elbow injury.
He is the second Jets player to be arrested this offseason.
Wide receiver Robby Anderson was caught driving 105 mph in a 45 mph zone last month in Florida and was arrested on nine different charges, which included resisting an officer/obstruction without violence; harm to a public servant or family; fleeing/eluding while lights/siren active; reckless driving; failure to drive in a single lane; two counts of disobeying/avoiding a red light; speeding; and turning without a signal.
“We are aware of the situation. This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment,” a team spokesperson said.
