The 30-year-old was allegedly intoxicated as he was trying to get on to the interstate going the wrong way when he hit another car head on early Sunday, according to the Tampa Police Department..
"We will be looking at anything that FDOT may have or even if the airport may have anything," explained Lt. Garfield Neal.
Neal was talking about any potential traffic camera video that may help investigators determine how or why Jacobson was allegedly driving the wrong way, trying to exit the Tampa International Airport on an entrance ramp.
Two men in the car Jacobson hit died at the scene and so far, their names have not been released.
According to Jacobson’s booking report, police tested his breath four times. He blew just over the legal limit of point .08 twice, and just below the legal limit twice.
A blood draw was also taken, but results from that are not back.
Each charge Jacobson faces carries a maximum 15 years in prison.
If Jacobson posts bond, he will not be allowed to drink and he will have to wear a scram monitor that can detect alcohol in his system.
