Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson was reportedly arrested at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami Gardens for trying repeatedly to enter a VIP area without the proper pass. Making matters worse, he ran away from police after being handcuffed, per Andy Slater.
As a result, Jackson was reportedly charged with felony escape and a misdemeanor for non-violently resisting arrest, per Miami-Dade county police records (via Arizona Sports 98.7 FM).
None of this is any good. For Jackson, it’s a continuation of a trend of poor off-court decisions that goes back to his first season in the NBA.
He entered the NBA draft with a court order to attend anger management classes and stay away from alcohol or drugs stemming from an incident with a female student-athlete at Kansas in 2016.
More recently, Jackson curiously failed to attend an autograph session at a local grocery store — a mistake the Suns fined him $20,000 for.
Last season, Jackson averaged 11.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for Phoenix.
