With the 2021 NFL draft fast-approaching, Mac Jones’ mug shot from a 2017 “drunk” video incident is resurfacing on social media.

This year’s NFL draft is littered with talented quarterbacks, including Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wison, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance.

Another of those is former Alabama Crimson Tide QB Mac Jones, who looks destined to join head coach Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 3 overall pick.

However, on the eve of the draft, Mac Jones’ name is trending for the wrong reasons.

In 2017, Jones was charged with driving under the influence after being arrested in Tuscaloosa.

The then 19-year old was involved in a car accident with another vehicle and subsequently failed a field sobriety test.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the car accident.

After the incident, a mugshot of the youngster went viral.
