NYPost A rookie Jets linebacker known as “Wild Man” was busted early Monday morning for a boozed-up, wrong-way crash with a jitney bus in the Lincoln Tunnel — and bragged about playing for the Gang Green during his arrest, authorities said. Dylan Donahue had a blood-alcohol level of .15 — nearly twice the legal limit — when he collided with the vehicle in the center, New Jersey-bound tube just before 2 a.m., sources said. A Port Authority cop witnessed Donahue, who was behind the wheel of a green Dodge Charger Hellcat, weave through traffic cones on the Jersey side and into the center tube against westbound traffic, according to PA spokesman Joe Pentangelo. The driver’s and passenger side airbags of the Charger were set off by the impact of the crash, which left the vehicle’s front-end completely smashed in. The 6-3, 248-pound athlete, who was the Jets’ fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft, failed sobriety and breathalyzer tests. He boasted about his position as a backup and special teams player during his arrest. “He’s telling them that he plays for the Jets,” a law enforcement source said. The jitney was carrying 15 passengers at the time. Four suffered minor injuries and were transported to Hoboken University Medical Center in stable condition. The 25-year-old was charged with DWI and reckless driving. Suleiman Mahmood, 21, who was in the passenger seat in Donahue’s car, was also charged with disorderly conduct.
New York Jets backup linebacker and special teamer Dylan Donahue was arrested for DUI on Sunday night, after he crashed into a bus in the Lincoln tunnel, in an accident that sent four bus passengers to a local hospital. Dylan Donahue failed a breathalyzer blowing a .15, and bragged that he played for the Jets during his arrest, while his female passenger 21-year-old Suleiman Mahmood was also arrested for disorderly conduct. Dylan Donahue, who was nicknamed “Wild Man” by his Jets teammates, was the Jets fifth round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft out of West Georgia. Donahue bragged about playing for the Jets during his arrest, but drunk driving through the Lincoln Tunnel and crashing into a bus is no way to keep the job that he was so proud of, do not be surprised if Dylan Donahue is a former member of the New York Jets shortly. Star players can make mistakes like this, backups and fringe roster players cannot, and the Jets will likely give this opportunity to a player who conducts themselves in a professional manner off the field.
