Josh Jackson Required To Attend Anger Management Classes

The potential NBA Draft lottery pick has to take anger management courses.

Josh Jackson will reportedly attend anger management classes as part of an agreement stemming from an alleged incident in which he kicked a car driven by a Kansas women's basketball player.

The Kansas City Star has obtained the court document that stipulates what the former Jayhawks' star must do as a result of the alleged incident with KU's McKenzie Calvert. Jackson was charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal property damage and pleaded not-guilty. He filed a diversion and signed it in late April, per the report.

Here's what the diversion requires:

“(E)nroll in and successfully complete an Anger Management counseling course” by Oct. 31

“(A)bstain from the use of alcohol and recreational drugs during the diversion period”

“(W)rite and sign a letter of apology to the victim(s)” by June 30

Complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service by Oct. 31

“(O)btain a substance abuse evaluation” by June 30 and “complete all the treatment recommendations listed in the evaluation.” If no recommendations were made, Jackson was “required to complete Alcohol Information School” by Oct. 31.

His case will reportedly be dismissed if he completes everything required.

Jackson is projected to be a top-five pick in June's NBA Draft.
