A Jets fan from New Jersey is blaming his DUI arrest on the team’s struggles.

Christopher J. Greyshock, of West Milford, NJ, faces charges of assault by auto, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, reckless driving and open container of alcohol in the motor vehicle after crashing his car on Sunday afternoon.

Police say Greyshock was “staggering and swaying, unable to walk straight in danger of falling onto the highway” and said he rear-ended the car that was stopped in front of him.

During his field sobriety test, he told officers, “I drank too much because the Jets suck.”

Police say they searched the vehicle and found a bottle of Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey in the front passenger seat in plain sight and 3/4 full.

The Jets lost 41-10 to the Bills on Sunday and now have a record of 3-7.
