The 22-year-old was booked into the Clark County Detention Center for DUI, police said.

Hobbs’ attorneys questioned the police statement.

"The facts and circumstances related by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to the news media leave serious concerns that this does not qualify as a DUI under Nevada law," David Z. Chesnoff and Richard A. Schonfeld said.

Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia addressed Hobbs’ arrest in his media availability.

"We're just trying to collect as much information as we possibly can on what exactly happened and what the situation is and where he's at with that," Bisaccia said.
