The Indianapolis Colts linebacker was arrested and charged with simple assault -- a misdemeanor -- on Tuesday night, according to Metropolitan Police of the District of Columbia.
A police report obtained Wednesday by NFL Media reveals that Jackson was arrested after an argument with a driver over a parking space. The driver told authorities that Jackson punched him in the left side of the face and in the back of the head during the dispute, according to the report.
Jackson is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 26, U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman William Miller told NFL Media. The linebacker is free on his own recognizance until the hearing. Miller added that that charge carries a maximum of 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
