On Sunday, NBA fans were fortunate to watch two entertaining playoff matchups. Unfortunately this weekend wasn’t very kind to Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson.
According to reports, Jackson was arrested over the weekend at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami.
Jackson reportedly didn’t have a VIP pass for the festival, but that didn’t stop him from trying to enter the area. Police then put handcuffs on the former first-round pick, which ultimately led to his arrest.
Andy Slater of 640 The Hurricane is reporting that Jackson attempted to run away from the the offers.
The Suns are apparently aware of the issue and are still in the process of learning more information.
Here are the current details on the arrest:

This isn’t an ideal situation for Jackson, who is trying to find his role in the NBA.
In his second season in Phoenix, Jackson saw a slight decline in a few of his numbers. His 11.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game aren’t near his level of production at Kansas.
During his time with the Jayhawks, Jackson averaged 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds in his only collegiate season.
This offseason will be important for Jackson as he tries to improve his game, while also figuring out this complicated situation.
