Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following an argument with a woman, the Osceola County (Florida) Sheriff's Office confirmed to NFL Media.
According to the police report, the woman said she feared for her life when the quarterback allegedly pointed a loaded gun at her and threatened to kill her while he was intoxicated. Police arrested Jackson and he was released from Osceola County Jail after posting $2,500 bond.
The woman told police that the quarterback arrived at their Kissimmee, Florida, home drunk and kicked in their bedroom door before getting into a verbal altercation with her. She said Jackson later took out a gun, loaded it and pointed it at her, stating "I will kill you," according to the police report.
A friend of Jackson's who was at the home restrained the quarterback when he threatened her. The woman told police she grabbed a knife and later a clothing iron to protect herself.
When police arrived, Jackson told them he was in a verbal argument with the woman. Jackson said no gun was involved, but police saw a 9 mm handgun on the kitchen counter, the report states. According to the report, Jackson said he grabbed a book bag that contained the gun because the woman was holding a knife. He also confirmed to police that he said he would shoot her, the report states.
