Drunk driving attorney Matt Jacobson has a tattoo on his back of an angry dog.
He was arrested on a DWI charge after allegedly being “thrown from a window” and slammed into the wall of his attorney’s home in August 2016, according to court documents.
“The tattoo on my back says ‘I will prove my innocence’ and I’ve got a gun and I’m a drunk driver,” Jacobson told ABC News in an exclusive interview.
“I’m a bad person, I’ve done bad things.
I’m not a good person.
I don’t have any remorse.
I just want to go home,” Jacobsen said.
Jacobson, an assistant attorney general for the Southern District of New York, is now serving a six-month prison sentence for the DWI, according the Daily Mail.
The tattoo, which Jacobson described as a “dirt bag,” was originally given to him by his brother-in-law after Jacobson was charged with assault in 2012, the Daily Post reported.
Jacobsons brother- in-law, Jeffrey Foy, also has a DWIs tattoo on both of his arms, according documents.
Foy was arrested in 2014 and pleaded guilty to a DWII charge after he allegedly threw Jacobson to the ground and slammed him to the pavement, according a police report obtained by ABC News.
“He’s a good guy.
I hope that I can prove my guilt.
I’ve had a lot of bad things done to me,” Jacobsons attorney, Daniel Schafer, told ABC.
The lawsuit filed against Jacobsson by the family of his nephew, Jamiad Foy Sr., accuses him of negligence and abuse of office, according ABC.
“There are a lot worse things you could do to somebody than what I did to him,” Jacob said.
The lawyer said he has no problem with people tattooing on their backs, but that they shouldn’t be doing it for “political purposes.”
“It is disgusting.
It’s not right,” Jacob told ABC’s “Good Morning America.””
If it’s going to be done for a political reason, I think the people who are doing it are doing something very, very wrong.
You’re putting people in danger.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Foy and Jacobson’s nephew, and claims that the tattoo violates his constitutional rights, including due process and equal protection.
